"The Battle Cry Of Freedom," a famous Civil War song, is the basis of this arrangement. The composer has added his own final verse to the text, the significance of which is the poignant image of a vacant chair at Thanksgiving due to the death of the young soldier days earlier. The arranger has woven trumpet taps into the fabric of this emotional, stirring song. Trumpet part available as a free download.
