Music where there was none historically
Curious as to opinions regarding presenting band music to the public at historical events where there is factual evidence that there were no bands present. Would such a presentation distort the observer's view of the historical event? Can this ever be justified as an acceptable accommodation or does this detract from the historical integrity of the presentation?

"As I stood upon the very scene of that conflict, I could not but contrast my position with his, forty-seven years before. The flag which he had then so proudly hailed, I saw waving at the same place over the victims of as vulgar and brutal a despotism as modern times have witnessed."
Francis Key Howard, Ft. McHenry 1861
