  1. Martin says:

    More interesting to add is, that Taps consists of 24 notes. Why this is important is that the number 24 is important to Freemasons — which Major General Daniel Butterfield was indeed a Freemason from Metropolitan Lodge #273 New York

  2. […] ceremony the history of the Taps was shared. I didn’t write it down, but I found this on the Taps Bugler Website  As the story goes, General Butterfield was not pleased with the call for Extinguish Lights, […]

  3. Tapsbugler says:

    the name Taps come from three drum taps. Please refer to the history of Taps on this site

  4. Donald Kalbach says:

    I had always heard, and I’m sure I read somewhere, that the name taps also referred to “tap-to,” which signaled that that taps on the beer kegs were to be shut, or turned “to.” I do not find that information anywhere. Is there any truth to this?

    The Bugler
    © by Harry Weglin 2011
    February

    At Arlington
    where heroes sleep
    at Gettysburg
    and Flanders too

    From off my shining bugle
    the setting sun
    Fires a flash of light
    to the downcast faces
    gathered ‘round

    Taps,
    each time as the first
    Tears burn my cheeks
    Once a young recruit
    now an
    Old soldier am I

    When I am placed
    among the heroes
    to sleep
    Who will raise a bugle
    For me ?
