An Army of Buckeyes (aka Stars and Stripes Forever)



Here, the award-winning Gilmer High School Buckeye Band plays the original long version of the tune behind its alma mater, An Army of Buckeyes. John Philip Sousa composed it in 1896. The band is directed by Eric Gray. This was the grand finale of the band's "Sounds of Spring" concert at the Gilmer Civic Center on Thursday evening, April 26, 2007.
