Ballads of the Revolution 1767-1781: Sung by Wallace House with Guitar

British-born folklorist Wallace House selected these 20 ballads for their historical significance and arranged them on this collection chronologically. The recording opens with a song from 1767 describing attempts to reconcile England with the colonies, and ends with a song about the defeat of the British Army at Saratoga from 1781.
