Spanish or USA march

Recommended Posts

I was watching this youtube about Bernardo de Gálvez:

Homenaje a Bernado de Gálvez en Tejas

If you notice in the video there is a marching band that play only two marchs all the time. One of this march: "Marcha tradicional de ingenieros", (about end of XVIII century, Carlos III' times):

Spanish March

remind me very much the march of the 20th Regiment of Main   of the USA moovie "Gettisburg". I think they are the same. It convert the spanish march into the first march copy by the USA army

to other army before  Gary Owen In Custer's times.

20th Regiment of Maine March

It is just a theory.

 Hello Bayern, maybe. But in Carlos III's times Belgian not depend of Spain but was part of Holland Kingdom (Reino Unido de los Países Bajos), created by the french and that was divided by the english in Holland and Belgium (divide et impera) Afterwards anyway, the spanish tradition could survived in some points as this. But is not likely because this march d'ont belong to the Tercios Tradition, belong to the "Reales ordenazas of Carlos III" (1768).

To Bayern

I don't think the USA marchs were based, I think are identical.

 The spanish ingineer march too in this better video (about minute 1:32).

Here it likes american march is based in spanish one, but in the video of Galvez (minute 7:20) are identical.

Hello Bayern, the name of this class of march is "palillera" because of the drumsticks that hit the musician. Anyway is a very simple "palillera".
