…Fredericksburg by Iced Earth.

"The Metal band Iced Earth released a song today that of all things is about the charge of the Irish Brigade at Marye's Heights at Fredericksburg. Called "Clear the Way" it has the virtues and faults of the genre…"

I'm not a fan of Metal overall, but the lyrics are those of a poet. It's going to sound strange, but with a bit of rearranging, Celtic Woman could make this song into something very special.

Thanks for that. I went looking and found 7 headed Bleeped text instead. Glad t see they have several songs about ACW

I guess the original Fág an Bealach (Faugh A Ballagh as popularly written around the Civil War, is an Anglicised version) wouldn't have scanned too well.

I like that. By amazing coincidence, I reenact with the 28th Massachusetts – 4th regiment of the Irish Brigade.
