Thread Name: Marching Songs (not cadences)
Subject: RE: Marching Songs (not cadences)
If marching at the slow cadence, your group could always try "The Owl" ("Of all the brave bird that e're I did see...") or "How Stands the Glass Around" - Both are a little late (17th/18th C) but contain no "easily datable" references.

See if you can get hold of a copy of "Songs and Music of the Redcoats" and of "The Rambling Soldier", there might be something in there which may help.
