Thread Name: happy? - June 18 (The Plains of Waterloo)
Subject: happy? - June 18
        On the eighteenth in the morning  [ie, 6/18/1815]
         Both armies did advance;
        On this side stood brave Albion's sons,
         On that the pride of France.
        The fate of Europe in his hands,
         Each man his sabre drew,
        And death or victory was the word,
         On the plains of Waterloo.

                "The Plains of Waterloo" from Gavin Greig, Folk-Song
                 of the North-East
, 1909; Article LXXIX
