Gettysburg the Metal Opera

Here’s something I would never have expected to blog about: A heavy metal rock opera about the battle of Gettysburg. ┬áThe Iced Earth lyricist does a pretty good job of summarizing each day of the fight – Buford’s defense and Reynolds’ death, Longstreet’s doubts, the struggle for Little Round Top, Hancock and Armistead’s friendship. The video is nicely produced. ┬áBest of all, for me, was the inclusion of captions – I’m far from fluent in metal.
