The Boston Crusaders are playing Conquest!!!
BAC is celebrating their 75th anniversary this season, a milestone that few corps have achieved, much less come close to. Considering the ups and downs this organization has gone through over those 75 years, it’s impressive that they’ve made it this long. One of the founding members of Drum Crops International, the Crusaders didn’t even make DCI Finals until 1999. When they did, however, Boston leaped in with a mighty Waldo roar and haven’t looked back since. Ironically, 1998, the last non-finalist year for the Crusaders, was also the last time they played Conquest as a part of their show. Yes, the corps has included snippets of Conquest throughout their recent history, including what I like to term the Imperial Conquest March near the end of last season’s Animal Farm, but this year is special. Conquest in year 75? You’d better hold onto your shakos, friends.
