The Ohio State University Marching Band has made headlines recently with some of its performances, most notably its routine that paid tribute to Michael Jackson and featured an on-field display of the king of pop’s moonwalking.

This weekend, the band went in a more patriotic direction, with its amazing marching rendition of the Gettysburg Address – this after a week that marked the 150th anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln’s famous speech.

The performance has everything – marching soldiers, horses, a stunning display of the Lincoln Memorial, and even the firing of a cannon, mixed in with some more somber moments.  It all builds up to a moving conclusion (which I won’t spoil for you here), as the crowd erupts in applause and cheers.
