Casper, Wyo. • The Troopers Drum & Bugle Corps was founded on the Civil War principles of the 11th Ohio Cavalry, whose soldiers protected what is now Fort Caspar. Since its inception in 1957, the corps has worn uniforms with strong Cavalry touches, down to the "11" on the gold buttons.
In 2014, the Troopers are going all out to remind their fans from coast to coast and judges in Drum Corps International of that heritage with a show that pays tribute to Abraham Lincoln.
"A People's House" moved corps director Fred Morris to tears the first time he heard it — and that was on a computer.
