15 Signs You Are In The Colorguard

We make marching band that much better.

15 Signs You Are In The Colorguard

We are the section of the band that is unlike any other. We don't play any instruments, yet have the privilege of calling ourselves "band geeks." We add color and fun to marching shows. If it wasn't for us, marching band wouldn't be same. We are the color guard.

1. We do not twirl flags, WE SPIN THEM!

2. The bond a color guard has is one unlike any other. Your guard is like your second family.

3. When you hear a song, you immediately start making choreography for it.

10 Revolutionary Women To Remember This Fourth Of July

Independence Day is almost upon us, which means that for most Americans, it'll be time to bust out the lawn chairs and grills, gather around family and friends, and praise our history through patriotic garb and grand fireworks displays. It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

But, while we celebrate what people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry did for this country, they are not the only ones who embodied the very virtues that our nation loves to advocate for. This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
