In its early days this senior corps appeared under a variety of names, including the VFW Post 1990 Drum and Bugle Corps, Andrew Johnson Cadets, and the Andrew Johnson Presidents. The 17th President of the United States had hailed from Greeneville, Tennessee, the corps' hometown.
The original senior corps became a junior corps in about 1954.
The corps participated in numerous drum and bugle corps contests, two presidential inaugural parades, several gubernatorial inaugural parades, and many special parades and exhibitions. They placed eighth in the VFW Nationals in 1957, seventh in VFW Nationals in 1956, and fourth in the 1959 VFW Nationals in Los Angeles. The Presidents were deactivated in 1972, but were reactivated in November, 1999, as a junior corps, in large part through the efforts of its new director, Bill Clendenon.
The Presidents made the switch to senior drum corps in 2002, believing DCA to be more supportive of new drum corps.
