Difficulty: 0

Lee: "It was very close, yesterday,

I thought for sure, they would break.

But this attack, that I have planned,

A massive strike across open land.

In the center they will break.

I've planned it well, everything's at stake.

We'll hit em hard, not a silent gun,

Before the infantry's begun"

"Execute it well!

We risk everything...

It's in Gods hands now."

Longstreet: "General Lee, I must tell you straight,

That I beleive this attack will fail.

No 15,000 men ever made

Will overtake that ridge today.

A mile charge over open ground,

With yankee cannon gunnin' us down"

Lee: "We do our duty, we do what we must

And in my plan, you will trust!"

Thousands died...

"Execute it well!

We risk everything...

...On this day

It's in God's hands now."

The rebel cannon break the silence,

One hundred fifty guns make up their cannonade.

They must destroy the union center,

Before the infantry can launch their grand assault.

The yankees are returning fire,

The earth shakes violently

In Washington D.C. Lincoln feels the earth shake.

What happens here this day,

The fate of this nation,

In the balance it will hang,

Consumed with the pain...

The courage of the blue,

The valour of the grey,

So very sad but true,

Consumed with the pain...

The virginians are the chosen

In wait behind the trees on Seminary Ridge.

Longstreet's slow to give the orders,

The lines emerged a mile, 15,000 men!

The charge begins in all its grandeur,

To the copse of trees

For many of these men, they know it is their last...

The slaughter now ensues,

Bodies fall like rain,

They valiantly pursue,

Yet doomed to remain...

At the double quick they charge,

The canister rips through them,

To the mouth of hell they march,

Glory, the only gain!

Armistead: "We're almost there my boys,

I've never served with finer!

We must push forward boys

And bayonet the yankee tyrants!

To the copse of trees we charge,

To crush the union center

And when they turn and run,

An open road leads us to freedom!"

Lee: "It's over now, we are retreating,

I never thought that we'd be beaten!

All this blood is on my hands,

The thousands dead due to my plan.

I am responsible, all of it is my fault.

I thought us invincible;

Is this gods will, after all?

I look across this blood soaked land,

All this blood is on my hands...

God forgive me,

Please forgive me...

It's all my fault,

The blood is on my hands!"
