I can also provide you with sheet music for our music if you'd like. Most of it has been transcibed into modern notation from the original period manuals for the pieces where the original notation can be hard to follow.

Ok. I will send the PDF files to you and the others that have requested the music soon. If anyone else would like to have it, just send an email to libertyhalldrumcorps@aol.com

The camp duty comes from Klinehanse's Manual of Instruction for Drummers (1853) and Howe's U.S. Regulation Drum and Fife Instructor (1862).

I uploaded it to the Authentic Campaigner a while back. Send me a PM and I can email a copy. Too large a file to post here.
