The Chicago Highland Rifles
is an Illinois non-profit corporation who provide highly trained and strongly motivated Colour Guards complete with bagpipers, drummers and buglers for special events. We accurately recreate the drill and ceremonies of a Scottish Highland Regiment for the funerals of America's heroes: its police officers, firefighters and military veterans. The members of the Chicago Highland Rifles work to keep alive for present and future generations of Americans, those traditions, values, and attitudes found in the Scottish Highland Regiments. We believe that those traditions, values and attitudes do much to insure the freedom and justice enjoyed by the citizens of the United States and British Commonwealth.
