    TAPS 150 is a non-profit organization incorporated in January 2010 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the origin of Taps, our national bugle call. The mission of TAPS 150 is to commemorate the origin of Taps in 1862 and to present events and public presentations for the purpose of educating the general public and furthering public awareness and understanding of this important part of our American cultural and military heritage.

    The bugle call Taps has, for almost 150 years, held a special place in our American heritage. Originally conceived as a replacement signal to order lights out at the end of the day in the military, the call transformed into the funeral honors accorded all uniformed persons who have faithfully served our country. While still sounded every evening at military bases to signal “Day is Done,” the notes of Taps have become part of our national conscience. In times of peace and war the 24 notes of this familiar melody have been performed each day in virtually every part of our nation.

    As we approach the 150th anniversary of this famous call, TAPS 150 has been organized to mark this date. TAPS 150 is planning commemorative events, special concerts and events that will culminate with ceremonies at National Cemeteries in May 2012 and a re-enactment event in July 2012 at Berkeley Plantation where Taps was born.


    We are teaming up with organizations:
