American Revolution – Music

We have learned that the American Colonists were able to defeat the British Army at the Battle of Yorktown.  The great British General Cornwallis had to surrender to General George Washington.  The ordinary foot soldiers responded to the victory in different way.  The American soldiers sang “Yankee Doodle Dandy”.  The British soldiers sang “The World Turned Upside Down”.

  1. The British meant to say that without them in power the world would be turned upside down. They did this because they couldn’t believe they lost the Revolutionary War.

  2. What I learned from the song “The World Turned Upside Down” was after the British lost the American Revolutionary War, they made a song on how their world was upside down. They couldn’t believe they lost the war!

  3. What I’ve learned about the song, “The World Turned Upside Down”, is how the British felt when they lost the American Revolution. I mean they couldn’t believe when they lost! They were the bigger army. They were professional soldiers. They couldn’t believe that the colonists could beat them! So everything was the opposite for them.
