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.  The 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.  Best of all, for me, was the inclusion of captions – I’m far from fluent in metal.
