"The Fields of Gettysburg" is the seventh piece in "Our American Heritage."
I set the opening and ending words of the Gettysburg Address to music and added musical variations. There are 3 sections:
1. Four Score and Seven Years Ago
"Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal."
2. Requiem for Rebs and Yanks
3. Government of the People
"Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
