Marching Quadrille

Tune Title

So designated by Bob Walters when he recorded it in September, 1955. According to the Walters family tradition, this tune was used in the Civil War. In my opinion, this tune is derived from "The Muckin' 0' Geordie's Byre"; see Allan's Ballroom Companion. This tune is also one of the strains in "Grandpa's Favorite Quadrille," published in Henry Ford's Good Morning and credited to E. T. Root and Sons.
