I attended Munford High School and graduated in 2010 and I am now a third year music education major at the University of Tennessee at Martin. This summer, I plan on Marching with the Boston Crusaders. The Boston Crusaders were founded in 1940 and are the third oldest corps in the circuit. In 1972, the Boston Crusaders were one of the thirteen charter members of Drum Corps International (DCI). That summer, there was a fire in the corps hall that destroyed much of the corps' equipment. The corps was forced to withdraw from many of its scheduled contests, and at one point, could claim only nineteen active members. Rather than attending the first DCI World Championship in Whitewater, Wisconsin, BAC returned to the field to compete at CYO Nationals, where they finished ninth of thirteen corps and solidified their reputation as, "the corps that would not die." In recent years, the Crusaders have done very well, finishing in the top ten for the past decade.
