Notes

  • -  The United States Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps traces its lineage back to George Washington¿¿¿s original continental army and serves as official escort to President of the United States. From the days of the American revolution through the 19th century, fifes, drums and bugles were vital to military order and discipline. Field musicians were used to issue commands during battle and to regulate the duty day, signaling when to rise, when to eat, and when the day ends.
