Military Bands Regina Barry
And a-One and a-Two
The Virginia legislature enacted a statute in 1738 requiring “free mulattos, blacks, and Native Americans to serve in the military”. Forbidden to bear arms due to colonial fears of uprising, they served exclusively “as drummers, fifers, trumpeters, or pioneers”. The long history of African-Americans in military bands… including paid service in colonial times and jazz musicians in WWI is fascinating.
