3TH CAVALRY BAND
SECOND OLDEST COLORED
BAND IN SERVICE.
Organized at Baton Rouge, Louisiana,
In 1867 Has Seen Service In Every
Part of the World Composed of
Negroes and Filipinos.
Perhaps nil of the people who wero
fortunato enough to hear the band
from tho fort as it played on tho
streets during tho day of tho Fourth,
wero not aware of the fact that they
wero listening to music made by one
of the oldest bands in the regular ar
my, and tho second oldest colored
band in the service.
Tho band is as old as tho army It
self and there are musical associa
tions In tho different branches ot tho
United States military ana naval de
partments, which can trace their be
ginning back to the days of tho na
tion's infancy, but tho tracing soon re
solves Itself Into tradition and loses
much of fnct when it passes much
beyond the time of the civil war.
Tho band of today, tho bands that
wo hear at tho various stations of the
army aro all, or at least most of them,
tho children of tho reorganization of
the army after tho late war had been
ended and peace had been declared.
And sinco this is so, tho band of tho
Ninth cavalry Is one of tho oldest
bands or tho united service, and tho
second oldest colored organization in
Tho band of tho Twenty-fourth In
fantry Is the oldest colored musical
organization In tho service, having
been organized at Baton Rouge, Lou
isiana, in 1865. The Ninth cavalry
band, tho one that played on tho
streets of Pendleton on the Fourth,
was organized in tho same place on
July 24, 1807. Since that time It has
been In almost all of uio posts of
the union and has seen service In
Cuba and In the Philippines.
From Baton Rouge, where it was
recruited, the band was sent to Fort
Brownsville, Texas, and from thero
was sent to Fort Beard, In Mexico.
After spending a long time in that
place It was sent to Santa Fe, and
from thero to Fort Riley, Kansas,
where thoy stayed two years. Fort
McKinney was their next place of
abode and from there they went to
Fort Robinson, Neb., whore thoy were
located at the time of the declaration
of war against Spain. They wero
sent with tho regular troops to Cuba
and were in tho thick of tho fight
throughout the campaign there, where
thoy did good servlco and won many
After tho band was returned from
the front It was sent to Fort Grant,
Arizona, where It stayed for two
years when It was again ordered to
the front and shipped for tho islands.
For two years the colored boys saw
all of the hardships and tho toll of
service In the field and then they
wero once more ordered to the Unit
ed States, where thoy were assigned
to Fort Walla Walla, their present
Chief Trumpeter John Wilson is
the oldest member of tho organiza
tion, having seen continuous service
since his enlistment in 187U. There
aro others who have served long
terms with tho band, Carl S. dunigal,
the chief musician, having been tho
leauer since issu.
In the ranks today are several Fill
plnos who have joined the band since
tho Spanish war, and thoy are good
musicians and good members of the
band. It was not a chance gathering
that was here, but It was tho perfec
tion of years of toil and discipline.
which has evolved one of tho best
bands of tho nation In any of her
branches of service, and one of the
old organizations of tho country. The
members of tho band are: C. S. Gun!
gal, J. W. Wilson, J. T. Thompson,
M. Woodard, T. Pleasants, J. H, Wil
lis, II. Henderson, C. Condol, Ixjw
I'atton, ai. Green, T. Brinson, T. Mor
