1863 Lee Seelig Corporal Thomas Ward Jr. Blog Entry

This is one of the songs from a musical I have been writing about General Lee himself. I am planning to call it 'Lee.' This song is called The Gettysburg Devastation.
Parody of the Adams Administration
[Thomas Ward Jr.:]
How does Robert Lee the soft spoken


Virginian General of the Johnny Rebs
Son of a dead war veteran
lose his invasion,
Destroy his reputation?
Welcome, folks, to

[Ward/Company:]
Gettysburg Pennsylvania!

[Ward:]
The Rebels won at Chancellorsville, which makes Lee overconfident

[Hooker:]
Stonewall Jackson can't help you now, no more mister smart lieutenant.

[Ward:]
Lincoln fires Gen’ral Hooker,
Publicly calls him “a reluctant disaster” in his taunts

[Hooker:]
Say what?!

[Ward:]
Meade takes command with nonchalance
[Meade:]
Sit down, Lee, you fat granny[*bleep*]!

[Ward:]
Lee’s reached highwater, and small numbers take their toll!

[Meade:]
This is great!
He's out of soldiers
He lost the battle
And we just split the Mississippi river, ending his chance of winning.

[Lincoln:]
The general’s experienced, if somewhat lacking in his health.
As long as he holds a sword, he’s a threat.
He’s on the go; let’s keep him low.
