Tune of the Day: The New York Volunteer

a.k.a “The Poachers” by G.A. Hodson

This Union song from the times of the American Civil War is sung to on an even older melody, namely that of George Alexander Hodson's song “The Poachers” (or “The Lincolnshire Poacher”).

Thanks to Hugo for suggesting this tune!
