1861

“1861” was originally a track on the Shadows 2nd album, “Out of the Shadows”, released in 1962. The track was also used as the “B” side to their #1 UK hit “Foot Tapper”. I could find no documentation about the tune, but the military march feel to the drum part — combined with fact that the title is also the date of the start of the US Civil war — could indicate the track is about that conflict.
