The National Hockey Leagueâ€™s Columbus, Ohio Blue Jackets assemble thousands of fans on a regular basis to cheer, support, and celebrate in a united front for their great cause: to win the game! Much as soldiers, generals, volunteers, soldier camps, and army bases banded together during the Civil War to boost each othersâ€™ morale, support their brothers in the fight, and to celebrate their homelands for their great cause.
What better way to illustrate this patriotic and prideful teamâ€™s association with such rich Civil War history than through red, white, and blue team colors? More specifically: Union blue, goal red, capital silver, and white.The full explanation can be found at http://www.bluejacketsxtra.com/content/stories/2012/06/07/0607-blue-jackets-talk-to-davidson.html The blue of their Union, the red to signify their brave goal, the richness of the silver, and the purity of the white binds team members and fans together with a flawless cohesion.
That great Shawnee leader from the Ohio Country called Blue Jacket would be proud of his close namesake. Blue Jacket rallied his team members and banded with his brothers in common cause shortly after the American Revolutionary War, directv, in this very spot.
With their Union blue, white stripes, and Civil War era cannon, their â€œWe Fight! We March!â€ mantra hits the mark, every time.
