Gettysburg: Day 1

This is a collection of poems for each day of the Battle of Gettysburg, July 1-3, 1863. They get longer as the chapters go on, and there is a separate chapter for each day of the battle. I was only able to write the last one today, on the anniversary of Pickett's Charge. Guess I just needed the right inspiration, huh? XP Let me know what you think!

Day 1

Get to the high ground

Or there's the devil to pay.

Reynolds is gone.

They're pushing us hard.

Have to hold;

I don't know if we can

Stay the course

Hold the ground.
