Culver troop to appear in Obama inaugural parade

Students from northern Indiana's Culver Academies are preparing to take part in President Barack Obama's inaugural parade, an event that marks the 100th anniversary of the school's first inaugural parade appearance.

Culver's Black Horse Troop made their first ride down Pennsylvania Avenue in January 1913. That year, the mounted unit served as the official escort for Vice President Thomas Marshall during Woodrow Wilson's inaugural parade. Marshall was governor of Indiana from 1909-13.

Fifty-nine cadets from Culver Military Academy's Black Horse Troop and 24 members of the Culver Girls Academy Equestriennes will make the trip to Washington for the Jan. 21 inauguration of Obama and Vice President Joe Biden. Ninety horses will also make the trip.
