The song is the “1812 Overture”

Written in 1880 by Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky to commemorate Russia’s defense of the Motherland against Napoleon’s invading Grande Armée in 1812.

I get really bad stares from people when I don’t stand for this song when it’s playing (and I’m a vet).

Let’s Recap:  The 4th of July patriotic celebrations in America are done while playing Russian victory songs in front frantic mobs waving US flags that get mad if you dont stand while it’s playing. O.oimages
