Spirit of America Returns to the Nation's Capital with Nine Performances this September

From our friends at the U.S. Army Military District of Washington...

Spirit of America Returns to the Nation's Capital, DC Armory - September 10-12, EagleBank Arena - September 18-19

Tickets are now available

The U.S. Army Military District of Washington brings Spirit of America to the nation’s capital this September for the first time in four years. The free two-hour show uniquely combines traditional military ceremony with a large-scale theatrical production, creating a stirring performance that showcases military discipline, historical reenactments, and traditional and modern music. Join us in celebrating the spirit, strength and history of our nation with nine performances scheduled across two weekends: September 10-12 at the D.C. Armory in Washington, D.C., and September 18-19, in Fairfax, Va. at EagleBank Arena (formerly the Patriot Center).

Spirit of America is a fast-paced journey that captures 240 years of Soldiers’ stories - true stories that span generations of men and women who have answered the call to uphold America’s freedom and democracy. Soldiers dressed in authentic historic uniforms perform dramatic reenactments from the American Revolution through current operations demonstrating the vital role the U.S. Army played in building our nation and how the Army continues that role today.

This patriotic live show is performed by a cast and crew of active-duty Soldiers, not actors, from The U.S. Army Band “Pershing’s Own” and the 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard). Spirit of America presents our nation’s history, common values and American musical heritage. It is a show for all ages and highly recommended for students in grades 5-12. Three shows are specially scheduled to accommodate field trips and group outings. A comprehensive educator’s guide is available at the show or online at

Spirit of America performances are open to the public, and tickets and parking for all performances are FREE.
