Published 1860. For more on Fred Wilson see "Monarchs of Minstrelsy" pp 55-56.
Levy doesn't give a pub date which is unusual because, if you zoom or view it as a PDF, it says "1863".
Usually, Levy gives the pub date if it's printed on the sheet music.
You are right, Paul. It's "1860" on the one you posted and I went back to see if it was different on Levy and one had no date and the other had "1860". I read it wrong....somehow saw the "0" as a "3".
So..... we have 3 additional years to play it at re-enactments!
OMG, thanks- I was pulling my hair out trying to think what the B part was from. Totally Harvest Home, imho!
I think it's a "family" of similar tunes. Is that the term I'm looking for? "Cliff Hornpipe" or "Ruby" is in that tune family and attributed (but not verified) to James Hill (1810s-?). Wes, you might know that one.
