Taps, a musical piece sounded at dusk and at funerals, has a rich and storied history in the United States. It has long been associated with the U.S. Military, and is often played at civilian events around the country.
National World War I Museum and Memorial presents the fourth annual TAPS AT THE TOWER each evening at sunset (8:45 p.m.) from Sunday, June 18 – Saturday, June 24, 2017.
People are invited to come and use the grounds each evening, have a picnic, play games and enjoy the outdoors. At sunset, people will gather at the Tower (Liberty Memorial) to experience Taps being played during a brief, moving ceremony.
