on speakers to hear "The Downfall of Paris".
Directions to create story and book.
Music: "The Downfall of Paris", from "Martial Music of Camp Dupont".
The tune was widely played during the time of this story, and it is likely that
Patrick Henry played the tune. Though usually associated with fifes and rudamental
drumming even as late as the Civil War, it is a typical 'fiddle tune" of
the time - energetic, simple melody line, plus harmonies here and there. Synthesized
