(FOX19) -

One should never put the Ohio State Marching Band and "mediocre" in the same sentence.

Known for their elaborate field performances and completely winning the Internet, the band ended their home game season with yet another incredible halftime performance: A marching rendition of the Gettysburg Address during the OSU vs. Indiana game on Saturday.

The band amazingly transitions between the date "1863," soldiers carrying guns, flags, a cannon firing and more.

Eventually the band forms the Lincoln Memorial while an announcer recites the famous speech by Abraham Lincoln delivered on Nov. 19, 1863 in Gettysburg, Penn. And it's awesome.

Near the end of the performance, two figures shake hands below the American flag representing the end of the Civil War.

Earlier this season, the band created a giant Michael Jackson formation and proceeded to moonwalk across the field, meanwhile providing us with yet another example of why they actually are 'The Best Damn Band in the Land.'
