With the music from the bagpipe of Forrest Cormany, you can rest assured that your loved ones would be thanking your from their graves for the warm and emotional send-off.
The Bagpipes Arrive in America
Bagpipes probably first came to America in the 1600’s when the Scots came seeking a new life or as indentured servants. One hundred years later, Scottish regiments came with the British to fight in the American War of Independence. By the time of America’s Civil War, Scottish and Irish immigrants were drafted into military service. The traditions of their homeland were not forgotten and that included the playing of bagpipes for their fallen.
The Bagpipes Accompany Us to War
World War I took American troops in mass (over one million) for the first time in Europe. These troops witnessed for the first time, pipers of the British forces “going over the top” of the trenches leading the men into battle.
World War II again saw the pipers leading the troops off of the landing crafts and onto the beaches of Normandy on D-day. President Kennedy invited the pipes and drums of the Regimental Black Watch to perform on the White House lawn for him and his family. Just days later First Lady Jackie Kennedy requested the band to take part in President Kennedy’s funeral procession.
