Pershing's Own and Presidential Salute Battery Honor America

Post by Patriots » July 6th, 2018, 11:58 pm


The Presidential Salute Battery of the U.S. Army 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) lends their special talents with firing four 5,775-pound World War II-era anti-tank guns during the final performance of the summer season annual 1812 Overture Concert by the U.S. Army Band "Pershing's Own" in August 2016 that honors America.

The music is Tchaikovsky's inimitable "1812 Overture" that was written to commemorate the Russian defeat of Napoleon's Grande Armée. Perhaps one of the finest examples of storytelling through music, Tchaikovsky calls specifically for live cannon fire to musically fight off the advancing Napoleonic army, symbolized by the French anthem La Marseillaise. Church bells, chimes, and the chorus of Russia's God Save the Czar celebrate the Russian victory.

Note... This performance is a clip from a courtesy video of the 1812 Overture Concert produced by the U.S. Army Multimedia & Visual Information Directorate in August 2016.
