This 1958 home movie captures the traditions of a home Texas A&M football game, including the procession of the Corps of Cadets, a perfornace by the Fightin’ Texas Aggie Band and color guard, and an appearance by the beloved mascot, Reveille. Do you recognize the Aggies’ opponent? Let us know in the comments, or email info@texasarchive.org.
The Texas A&M Corps of Cadets is a student military organization that teaches discipline and leadership skills to cadets, preparing them for a military career. When the Texas A&M was founded in 1876 in College Station, being a member of the Corps was a requirement. Participation in the Corps is now optional, since the school is no longer all-male, or strictly a military institution, but it still stands as an honored tradition.  Reveille, a mascot for the “Fightin’ Texas Aggies”- typically a collie or sheepdog, is often present in Corps processions. The Corps helped establish the identity of Texas A&M and remains an integral part of the university’s persona.
