Video: Ohio State marching band pays tribute to Gettysburg Address


The Ohio State Buckeyes marching band was at it again on Saturday.

Seen here is the "Best Damn Band in the Land" paying tribute to Abraham Lincoln's Gettsyburg Address during halftime of its win over Indiana. This week marks the 150th anniversary of the famous speech.

As you can see from the video below, the band marvels the crowd with formations ranging from marching soldiers, to the Lincoln Memorial, to cannons being fired, among others. And while most fans at college football games leave their seats during halftime, Ohio State's band is so good that it demands folks to stay and watch. Judging by the performance, it was worth sticking around and avoiding the long lines at the concessions and restroom, anyway.
