At the same time as ancient roots, the custom of unmanned horse riding in the funeral procession has changed dramatically, as traditional mourners take a horse to a burial place where it is slaughtered and eaten as part of it. ceremony. Horses are occasionally sacrificed so that their souls can accompany their masters into the afterlife, buried in the grave from time to time for the same purpose, and sent to a similar journey to another world in the 14th century.
Native Americans in the early days of North America were very awed by horses. Although the founders of the United States may not have such reverence at first, they still respect the important role of animals in transportation, agriculture, sports and military. At the end of the 18th century, in the United States, with the death of the first president of the United States, a new role emerged: the unmanned horse represented a fallen leader.
Former US War of Independence, Henry "Light-Horse Harry" Lee celebrated George Washington in December 1799… first in the war, first in peace, first in the hearts of his compatriots … "Washington is twelve days after the death of Mt. Vernon, an unmanned horse, participated in a well-designed simulated funeral ceremony in Philadelphia, the capital of the United States, in which an empty coffin symbolized the late president. The activity is described in the Pennsylvania Gazette :
in front of the clergy of the funeral team, two Marines wearing black scarves escorted the horse, carrying the general's "saddle" , leather cases and pistols" and boots. Reverse on the stables. The unmanned horse was "pruned into black – the head was decorated with elegant black and white feathers – the American eagle was shown in a rose on the chest and left a feather on the head."
Empty boots There are two levels of meaning on the stables facing the rear. First of all, their emptiness indicates that the individual will not ride again. Second, they suggested that the deceased finally review his family and the troops he commanded. These two meanings continue to the tradition of boots that are reversed in the stables today.
In 1850, the funeral of former military general Zachary Taylor was celebrated as "old rough and ready", more personal, so to speak. During the Mexican-American War, Taylor's own army, Old Whitey, took part in the funeral procession with the military saddles worn in battle, when Old Rough and Ready sat next to him. "He made his head." ring". Like the Philadelphia ceremony in honor of George Washington, the general's boots were reversed on the stables.
Many people who witnessed the funeral in 1825 were familiar with a light gray horse old white. He has become a popular tourist destination during his 16-month presidency of his master, grazing on the front lawn of the White House, and when Taylor was hit by a so-called gastrointestinal tract, it is said to be the source of this complication. Ingest cold milk and cherries on a hot day.
Perhaps because the assassination of Abraham Lincoln in 1865 was immediately considered to be a profound tragedy in American history, Lincoln's funeral was carefully planned on a large scale, in line with people's flattery. A funeral train carrying his coffin travels nearly 1,700 miles in 180 towns in seven states, occasionally stopping for public viewing and mourning as it moves toward its final destination – Spring, Illinois In the direction of Field, a young Abe has grown into a man.
] This marks the first photo of an unmanned horse that took part in the funeral of the US president. One of the most memorable performances of Lincoln's Ma Bob's many photos is his black mourning blanket with white borders, alternating black and white tassels, and a black hat with a delicate headgear. When he stood at the window, he was decorated in a similar way on the window.
Lincoln rides from one town to another, and self-taught lawyers run for office, and old Bob retires on the ranch because of his master's final ceremony. He was led by the African American Minister, Pastor Henry Brown, who attended the funeral procession. They occasionally performed the handyman mission for the Lincoln team. They followed the hearse to Lincoln's resting place.
The strange thing is that the tradition of unmanned horse riding did not observe the views of the US president during the next eight decades at the funeral. It was not until 1945 that Franklin Delano Roosevelt died unexpectedly during his fourth term as president. It turns out that in Roosevelt's funeral plan, this horse seems to be almost an afterthought.
The death of Roosevelt put Americans in a heavy dilemma, and US government officials focused on transitioning to new leaders around the world. In the war, it is understandable that no one riding a horse to participate in Roosevelt's funeral procession may not receive early attention. This is the problem described in the New York Herald Tribune :
"After the caisson (with the FDR flag coffin), a black soldier leads a no-man riding." Black, a black fairing, and a saber gently bounced off the horse's abdomen. The funeral team was held in Hyde Park, New York, and the late president was buried in a garden in Roosevelt Manor. We will assume that the saber is attached to the saddle and gently bounces off the side of the horse.
1963 was another traumatic period for Americans, especially the family of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy who was assassinated in Dallas, Texas in November. twenty three. The unmanned horse riding at the Kennedy Funeral Parade will be one of the most famous horses: Black Jack who will represent the rise of the fallen leader in the Kennedy Procession, President Herbert Hoover (1964) and Lyndon B Johnson (1973), and General Douglas MacArthur (1964), and other famous Americans.
The Black Jack agreement in the Kennedy Funeral Parade will set the standard for unmanned horse riding from 1963 to the present. He was pinned by a black-decorated English riding saddle and a black horse reins. Black, stimulating cavalry boots are oriented backwards in the stables and scabbards are hung from the rear of the saddle. Underneath the saddle is a heavy saddle cloth or saddle blanket that is decorative in design.
Although he was named after the army general John J. "Black Jack" Pershing, Black Jack was not born into service. A dark bay, Morgan-Quarterhorse, crossed a small star on his forehead. He was shackled on a farm in Kansas in 1947 and later purchased by the US Army Quartermaster Team for reinstallation and reinstallation. It means that the soldier needs to replace one who was injured or killed in the days of the American Cavalry. The Army then transported Black Jack to Reno Fort, Okla., to reload the warehouse, where he was trained and trained.
He is not a tall horse – 15 hands, weighing 1050 pounds – but he is cheerful and full of energy. In fact, when he was transferred to Fort Myers, the military post office adjacent to the Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia in 1952, his arrogant spirit was a problem for his handlers. When he first appeared as an unmanned horse in the funeral parade in Arlington, he jumped and jumped many times. However, the mourners liked his energetic nature, so his non-military antics were tolerated. These antics continued until 1973, after thousands of funerals.
When Black Jack died in 1976, his body was cremated and his ashes were buried with full military honor. A monument on Fort Myer's Summerall Field parade proved his respect. Raven, another dark horse, inherited Black Jack as a no-man riding responsibilities.
Raven did not appear in the funeral procession of the President of the United States, although he may participate in the funeral of more than a thousand military leaders who are eligible to participate. Buried in the Arlington National Cemetery. The solemn funeral service provided to the President of the Army Commander is also available to the Army and USMC officials or higher, and there are many such officers among the honored deceased in Arlington.
At this time, President Dwight D. Eisenhower should be mentioned. He died in March 1969 and was buried in Abilene, Kansas. Unrecorded horses attended the funeral ceremony in Kansas, but earlier in Washington, a horse-riding horse did follow a horse-drawn box with Eisenhower coffin from the Washington National Cathedral to the Houses of Parliament. The late president was The state lives and is available for public viewing. Capitol Rotunda.
A video from the cathedral to the Capitol shows an unmanned horse, whose color is almost livery, with a small star on his forehead, a horse prancing and dancing in the parade, impatiently Standing next to the "rest", there is a suspicious similarity with Black Jack's behavior. If the fidelity of the color in the video is flawed and the horse's jacket is almost black, it may be BJ, as the Black Jack's groom and the Pacers call him, related to the most popular military commander. . The Second World War and later the 34th President of the United States
The most unmanned horse represented the horse riding of the late US President and was the last recorded horse, followed by Ronald Reagan in 2004. The caisson of the body. Reagan was later buried in the Simi Valley in California, so here we have Eisenhower. The late President’s tan, stimulating riding boots flipped over the stables, replacing the traditional black cavalry boots. The Washington parade ended at the Capitol, where a closed coffin was in observation.
The unmanned horseman who paid tribute to Ronald Reagan during the parade was Sergeant York, a dark bay named after a decorated American soldier who mowed me, Alvin C. York. However, before the York Sheriff entered the military service, he had been trading for several years in the name of Allaboard Jules. Allaboard Jules became a standard stable in 1991 and became a famous horse in 1997.
In this article, the military has been mentioned many times and many of these references will be explained.
] In 1948, the 3rd Infantry Regiment of the Army was assigned to organize and conduct the funeral procession of the President of the United States resting at the Arlington National Cemetery, as well as other Americans qualified to perform funeral in military honors in Arlington. Founded in 1784, the old guard of the Third American Infantry Regiment is the oldest active force in the US Army. It is headquartered in Fort Myers, Virginia, adjacent to the country's most sacred cemetery.
The Old Guard's Caisson Platoon provided muscle and touch to the 1963 commemoration of JFK's formal and elegant funeral procession, as well as the subsequent parade of this article. The soldiers of the caisson row are committed to tradition, respecting the distinguished deceased, respecting the forty or more horses they provide for care, and respecting their maintenance of the 1918 caissons, which bring the coffins to their final resting place
A person riding a horse is also known as a horse riding horse. The metaphor refers to the decorative design on a saddle cloth or a saddle blanket. The leader who led the unmanned horse is called a hat walker. In the case of the lively Black Jack, the young hat walker is dealing with him in the parade. He may have a story to tell his comrades at the end of the day at Carson Row.
