Thread Name: DTStudy: Dying British Sergeant
Subject: ADD Version: General Gage
"Britannia's Disgrace..." is entitled "General Gage" in an other undated broadside. To General, it adds 'Gage' to verse five, line four.
It has two York verses:

We sailed to York, sailed through the sound
And many a traitor there we found
Who told us we could win the day-
There was no danger they did say.

As a last verse:
We sailed from York as you've told
With the loss of many a Briton bold,
Full fifteen hundred have been slain,
Bold British heroes every one.

Both of these broadsides are printed with 19th c. type.
