Steve Earle - Dixieland
I am Kilrain of the 20th Maine and I damn all gentlemen
Whose only worth is their father's name and the sweat of a workin' man
Well we come from the farms and the city streets and a hundred foreign lands
And we spilled our blood in the battle's heat
Now we're all Americans
Colonel Joshua Chamberlain, July 2, 1863
"Stand firm, ye boys of Maine, for not once in a century are men permitted to bear such responsibilities!"
