#MooreTailgates Instagram Challenge: How do you tailgate?
Have you ever considered how tailgating came to be an American tradition? Supposedly, the first tailgate dates back to the start of the Civil War when civilians packed baskets of food and beverages and travelled to cheer on their “team” at the first Battle of Bull Run in 1861. Another early example of tailgating occurred at the first American football game between Rutgers and Princeton in 1869. Though cars nor parking lots existed 145 years ago, fans still managed to deck out in their team colors and enjoy a meal prior to kick off.
Tailgating has evolved quite a bit since the Battle of Bull Run and the first American football game. Though most of today’s tailgates feature spirited fans, delicious food, flowing beverages and party games, we realize that everyone has different tailgating traditions.
