The bugle call "Taps" had its origins on a battlefield of the Civil War.  After the union suffered a large number of casualties in a battle near Richmond, Virginia, Brigade Commander Colonel Daniel Butterfield reflected with sadness upon the men he had lost.  Unable to compose music, he hummed a melody which his aid wrote down in musical notation.  The company bugler played it that night to honor their dead comrades.  Taps was officially recognized by the United States Army in 1874.  Accompanied by the drumbeat, Muffled Ruffles, it is the highest honor given to those who have died in service to our country.
