On the American battlefield
In 1863
Many things are happening.
Innocent blood from both sides
Is being shed.
Some men as young as sixteen,
Never having the opportunity
To go back home again.
Back home, wives and children
Are waiting to see their soldiers come back home
But are they in for disappointment?
In the South,
They do not know,
That the war will favor the North.
What is the purpose of these wars?
Perhaps you can tell me someday.
