The name of the tune is british grendaniers but it is not played on the flute its actually played on the fife which paired with the drum was the way to communicate messages acrossed the field during a battle. Since in this scene they are in the battle there would have been no music actually playing because the fife and drummers would have been waiting to play a retreat or charge song at the generals command. Oh and just in case you are wondering why i know this it is because im a fifer in the Janesville Fife and Drum Corps. and we do reenactments of the french and indian and revolutionary wars. Hope this helps!!
