THE WRECK OF THE PRINCESS ALICE

3 September 1878 The paddle steamer, The Princess Alice, sank on the RiverThames.

Sinking of SS Princess Alice from Wikipedia

The Wreck of the Princess Alice - The Wellington Wailers     https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWTYpI8mIrc

THE WRECK OF THE PRINCESS ALICE

1. If you listen to me, a story I'll relate
Of a ship called the good Princess Alice.
She met with her fate in 1878.
She was known as the "Floating Palace".

CHORUS: When the Princess Alice sank in Barking Reach,
Six hundred and forty died together.
Not all had been drowned as the coroner found,
Some were poisoned by the black stinking river.

2. Eight hundred or more were aboard her for sure,
On a pleasure trip in gay company,
But for hundreds of men, their families and their friends,
Oh the pleasure was surely not to be. CHORUS

3. To Sheerness they went, via Woolwich and Gravesend.
William Rickstead it was the captain's name,
And the helmsman was John Ayers who was new to such affairs,
But the captain must accept the final blame. CHORUS

4. As they rounded Tripcock Point, a collier came in sight,
Bywell Castle, a thousand tons or more,
And the collier's captain thought that ships should pass to port
And maintained his position by the shore. CHORUS

5. Well, the Alice came around from the shelter of the land
And was turned by the ebbing tide,
And by now it was too late to avoid the dreadful fate
And the collier caught her squarely in the side. CHORUS

6. There were screams. there were shouts as the ships lights went out.
They took just four minutes to go down,
And though the collier's gallant crew managed to save just a few,
All the rest were either poisoned or drowned. CHORUS

7. Well, the inquest resolved that lessons should be learned
And rules of navigation put together,
And they stand to this day, and I'm very pleased to say
That they've cleaned up the black, stinking river. CHORUS

THE FIELD OF MONTEREY The Field of Monterey

The song was inspired by the Battle of Monterrey in the Mexican American War, which was one of the most significant battles in the war, but also one of the bloodiest. The words to “The Field of Monterey” can be traced back to the authorship of Marion Dix Sullivan (1802-1860), a poet from New Hampshire. “The Field of Montery” (sic) was written in 1846 and subtitled as being “affectionately dedicated to Mrs. Virginia Q.S. of Virginia.” Edna Bradeen’s version here, which she learned from her mother, is slightly different than Sullivan’s original.

Sullivan’s poem was not the only artistic expression to be inspired by the battle. Many poems were written about it. Also written were the songs, “The Storming of Monterey” and “The Maid of Monterey.” The latter seems to have been the most popular of all of the songs to come out of the battle. Most of these songs were written in the same style as the popular sentimental pieces of the day. MAINE SONG AND STORY SAMPLER

Battle of Monterey; Early on 7 July 1846, the frigate USS Savannah and the two sloops, USS Cyane and USS Levant of the United States Navy, captured Monterey and raised the flag of the United States. The only shots fired were a 21-gun salute to the new U.S. flag fired by each of the U.S. Navy ships in the harbor. Wikipedia

Battle of Monterrey; General Pedro de Ampudia and the Mexican Army of the North was defeated by the Army of Occupation, a force of United States Regulars, Volunteers and Texas Rangers under the command of General Zachary Taylor. The hard-fought urban combat led to heavy casualties on both sides. Wikipedia (General Taylor won the day!)

The Maid of Monterey - Published F. D. Benteen, Baltimore, 1851
She cast a look of anguish, On dying and on dead;
Her lap she made a pillow For those who groan'd and bled.
And when the dying soldier For one bright gleam did pray,
He bless'd the Senoretta, The maid of Monterey.

So, unless the song is completely fictitious, it appears to refer to the Battle of Monterrey.

I wonder whether there's some confusion here between Monterey and Monterrey. Both were Mexican, and both were battle sites in 1846 during the war between the United States and Mexico, Monterey on 7 July, Monterrey 21 to 24 September. Monterrey is still Mexican, while Monterey, several hundred miles to the North, is in California, which was ceded to the US by Mexico as a result of the war.

Thanks GerryM you may be right but the song title given is spelled “ Monterey “ so possibly it is with the songwriter that the confusion came in ?

THE MAID OF MONTEREY - John Hewitt - 1848

The Maid of Monterey

Tom Roush; This is one of the few songs that was written about the Mexican-American War that was fought between 1846 and 1848. Most Americans know little and choose to ignore this conflict but I assure you that the people of Mexico remember it. The song was composed by John Hewitt who would write many songs of the Confederacy in the American Civil War.

14 September 1812: Napoleon entered Moscow, which had been abandoned by the Russians using a scorched earth policy. But winter was approaching and Napoleon soon had to retreat.

THE WARLIKE LADS OF RUSSIA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mM6chknRF3Q Nic Jones

Nic Jones recorded both this ballad and The Bonnie Banks o' Fordie in September 1974 for the benefit LP for Fred Woods' magazine Folk Review, The First Folk Review Record. According to the sleeve notes; the words are from a broadside in the Harkness Collection at the Harris Museum and Library in Preston; and the tune is collated from various traditional sources, with contributions from Nic Jones. This recording was later included in the Fellside anthology LP and CD Flash Company and on Nic Jones' 2 CD anthology Unearthed where he noted:

Possibly to the consternation of some, I often deliberately altered or re-wrote words and tunes of traditional songs, although I did try to keep it very much in sympathy with the original. Broadsides, however, offered a good source of ballads without such constraints and gave me the freedom to compose around the text without offence. Described on a broadsheet as A New Song—Bonaparte's Escape from Russia, I added a few extra words, wrote a tune and called it The Warlike Lads of Russia. Mainly Norfolk

From: GeoffLawes Date: 17 Oct 21 - 07:18 PM The Battle of the Plains of Abraham, also known as the Battle of Quebec , was fought on 13th September 1759.

Link to post above for SONGS ABOUT GENERAL WOLFE AND HIS DEATH IN QUEBEC

We learned about this as the Battle of the Heights of Abraham. It was a decisive defeat of the French under the Marquis de Montcalm by a British force led by Major General James Wolfe. Both commanding officers died from wounds sustained during the battle.

Jim Copper sings BOLD GENERAL WOLFE ;

Bold General Wolfe to his men did say,
“Come lads and follow without delay,
To yonder mountain that is so high,
Don't be down-hearted, don't be down-hearted,
For we'll gain the victory.”

From Mainly Norfolk

The French and Indian War was the North American phase of the Seven Years’ War (1756–63), which was also fought in Europe and India. On one side was the alliance of France, Austria, Sweden, Saxony, Russia, and Spain; on the other, the alliance of Britain, Prussia, and Hanover.

WHAT’S THE LIFE OF A MAN

On 2 September 1904, Vaughan Williams collected this song and two more from J. W. Wright, plus two more from Frank Bailey, quite possibly together in the Fox and Goose in Coombe Bissett, Wiltshire.

A good reason to play
Keith Kendrick with Coope Boyes and Simpson.

J.W. Wright was probably James Wright, aged about 38, an agricultural worker who later became a shepherd. Vaughan Williams wrote of Wright’s song ‘I doubt if it’s a folksong he learnt it 30yrs ago [sic]’, which would have meant Wright was a child at the time. This is not unlikely – in the 1970s Ginette Dunn was told that one well-known singer, Cyril Poacher, started to learn his repertoire sitting on the knee of his grandfather.

AN CHÉAD MHÁIRT DEN FHÓMHAR is an Irish lament about Páidí Ó Dónaill, who was drowned on the "First Tuesday of the Autumn"/the Harvest

as sung by Jerry Hicks (youtube)

http://seannos.tg4.ie/baile/amhranaithe/diane-ni-chanainn/an-chead-mhairt-de-fhomhar/ lyrics and singing of Diane Ní
The lyrics aren't on Mudcat yet, but there is a comment by Niall Comer at https://mudcat.org/Detail.CFM?messages__Message_ID=288750
Niall says that as far as he knows, Séamas O Dónaill composed the song in 1811 to lament the loss of his son. The two men were bringing home a bag of corn to make poitín with. The bag was too heavy so the men split it up. The father walked home with his portion, but the son was in a boat and he never reached to shore.Chanáinn

Geoff, could you move An Chéad Mháirt den Fómhair to the September thread. The first Tuesday of autumn would fall between 21 and 27 Sept. In 1811 the date would have been 24 Sept., if I'm not mistaken.
Done . Thank you, Felipa-Geoff

Here it is: written by Roy Williamson of The Corries: it doesn’t mention the date, but the history books will tell you that the battle was in September!

THE BATTLE OF PRESTONPANS                         Roy Williamson

The chevalier, being void of fear,
Did march up Birsley Brae, man,
Through Tranent, ere he did stint
As fast as he could gae, man.
General Cope did taunt and mock
Wi’ many a loud hussa, man,
But ere next morn proclaimed the dawn
We heard anither craw, man.

Chorus
General Cope led frae behind
Tae keep his men in order,
When the English ran, he was in the van
And first across the Border.

The brave Lochiel, as I heard tell
Led Camerons on in clouds man,
The morning fair, and clear the air
They loosed with devilish thuds man.
Down guns they threw, and swords they drew
And soon did chase them off, man,
On Seaton Crafts, they buffed their chafts
And gart them run like daft, man.                Chorus

Now Caddell dressed among the rest
Wi’ gun and guid claymore, man,
On gelding gray, he rade the day
Wi’ pistols set before, man.
The cause was good, he’d spend his blood
Before that he would yield, man,
But the night before, he left the corps,
And never faced the field, man.                Chorus

Now Simpson keen tae clear his een
O’ rebels far in wrong, man
Did never strive wi’ pistols five
But he galloped wi’ the throng, man,
Ower Sutra Hill, e’er he stood still
Before he tasted meat, man,
Monteith may brag, o’ his swift nag
That bore him aff sae fleet, man.                Chorus

The bluff dragoons swore blood and oons
They’d mak the rebels run, man,
Yet they flee, when them they see
And they winnae fire a gun, man,
They turned their back, their foot they brak,
Terror seized them a’, man,
Some wet their cheeks, some filled their breeks
And some for fear did fa’, man.                 Chorus

I note that Johnnie Cope was mentioned higher up the thread, and this week was the 276th anniversary of the Battle of Prestonpans. The late Davy Steele, who came from Prestonpans, sang it to a different tune from the well-known one.
And the Corries had a different song entirely, called “The Battle of Prestonpans”: ‘ll see if I can find it!
