Stories that Must be Told!

History matters to us today because history offers lessons.

War is hell, but that's not the half of it, because war is mystery and terror and adventure and courage and discovery and holiness and pity and despair and longing and love. War is nasty; war is fun.
War is thrilling; war is drudgery. War makes you a man; war makes you dead.

Why read and study books about nazi Germany and Adolf Hitler?

The Story Behind Military Taps

Here is something every American should know.  Until I read this, I didn't know, but checked it out and it's true:

We in the United States have all heard the haunting son, "Taps". It's the song tht gives us that lump in our throats and usually tears in our eyes.

But, do you know the story behind the song? If not, I think you will be interested to find out about its humble beginnings.

Reportedly, it all began in in 1862 during the Civil War, when Union Army Captain Robert Ellicombe was with his men near Harrison's Landing in Virginia. The Confederate Army was on the other side of the narrow strip of land.

During the night, Captain Ellicombe heard the moans of a soldier who lay severely wounded on the field. Not knowing if it was a Union or Confederate soldier, the Captain decided to risk his life and bring the stricken man back for medical attention.

Crawling on his stomach through the gunfire, the Captain reached the stricken soldier and began pulling toward his encampment.

When the Capain finally reached his own lines, he discovered it was actually a Confederate soldier, but the soldier was dead.

The Captain lit a lantern and suddenly caught his breath and went numb with shock. In the dim light, he saw the face of the soldier. It was his own son. The boy had been studying music in the South when the war broke out. Without telling his father, the boy enlisted in the Confederate Army.

The following morning, heartbroken, the father asked permission of his superiors to give his son a full military burial, despite his enemy status. His request was only partially granted.

The Captain had asked if he could have a group of Army band members play a funeral dirge for his son at the funeral. The request was turned down since the soldier was a Confederate. But, out of respect for the father, they did say they could give him only one musician.

The Captain chose a bugler. He asked the bugler to play a series of musical notes he had found on a piece of paper he had found in the pocket of the dead youth's uniform. This wish was granted.

The haunting melody, we now know as "Taps" used at military funerals was born.

The words are:

Day is done...Gne the sun...From the lakes...From the hills...From the sky...All is well...Safely rest...God is nigh. Fading light. Dims the sight...And a star...Gems the sky Gleaming bright...From afar...Drawing nigh...Falls the night.

Thanks and praise...For our days. Neath the sun...Neath the stars..Neath the sky. As we go...This we know...God is nigh.


I, too, have felt the chills while listening to "Taps" but never seen all the words to the song until now. I didn't even know there was more than one verse. I also never knew the story behind the song and didn't know if you had either so thought i would pass it on. I now have an even deeper respect for the son than I did before.

Remember those lost and harmed while serving their country and also those presently serving in the armed forces. "Taps" will never cease to be non-existent so let us always honor it.

"Aviation is proof that given, the will, we have the capacity to achieve the impossible."
