Spirit of America was founded as a small community band in 1980.

The band was named Spirit of America following the parade, after receiving an award from the parade committee for "Best Representing the Spirit of America. Since then, the band has marched in parades and performed field shows for many audiences across the U.S., Canada, Australia, South Korea, and South Africa. Spirit of America Field Band won the World Association of Marching Show Bands Championships in Jeju, South Korea in August 2006.

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and torturous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness, with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we called it the word of a demon than the Word of God. It is a history of wickedness that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind.
    Thomas Paine (1737–1809)

    The greatest honor history can bestow is that of peacemaker.
    Richard M. Nixon (1913–1995)

    The history of the genesis or the old mythology repeats itself in the experience of every child. He too is a demon or god thrown into a particular chaos, where he strives ever to lead things from disorder into order.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
