The Fields of Gettysburg is a song cycle that weaves together the personal stories of six people—actual people—whose lives intersected on the crossroads of Gettysburg during the epic battle that took place there on July 1–4, 1863.
Certainly a turning point of the American Civil War, Gettysburg is among the ranks of the most significant battles in world history. Approximately 200,000 lives collided in this small Pennsylvania town (population: 2,500 at the time); creating at least that many viewpoints and a million stories to tell.
