The "Victory Commencement" of the Class of 1919, during which a throng of alumni, happy to be back from WWI service, formed the longest and most colorful P-rade up to that time, lives on in Princeton lore. That year Alumni Day coincided with Flag Day, and at the conclusion of the parade, a band struck up "The Battle Hymn of the Republic,'' and five thousand alumni marched across University Field, waving their flags from right to left with each step -- "a moving sight,'' the Alumni Weekly reported, "which brought the 10,000 spectators to their feet.'
