HAPPY PRESIDENT'S DAY
I hope you will take time to read the posts about Abraham Lincoln and George Washington. They were larger than life heroes. So many Americans great and small have made huge sacrafices for freedom. We should all be grateful for their efforts.
THE FIFE AND DRUM
of the Revolutionary War
The fife was an enormously popular instrument in the United States during the period from the 1750s until shortly after the end of the Civil War. Because of the prominent role of fifes and long drums during the Revolutionary War and the early years of the republic, these instruments have become traditional symbols of the young nation and of its heritage.
