The Ohio State University marching band gave the Internet another impressive video. This time, they played tribute Saturday to the Civil War and the Gettysburg Address, which was delivered 150 years ago this week.

The band forms soldiers, horses and a cannon, making them move with flawlessness. While the band forms the Lincoln Memorial, the announcer recites Abraham Lincoln's famous speech delivered in Gettysburg, Penn. on Nov. 19, 1863.

Eventually, two figures form to shake hands under the American flag, symbolizing how the Civil War ended.

Watch the full performance in the video above.
