Acrostic Battle of Gettysburg Poetry
I wrote this acrostic Battle of Gettysburg poem. What do you think?
Boys march to confrontation
At Gettysburg on Union soil
True to the cause
They stand together and fight
Led by a loyalty to their nation
Even though the nation is divided
On march the lines of blue and grey
Facing each other in fire
Three days of battle
Test their spirits
Yearning for freedom
Smoke fills the air
Boys cry for mother
Union stands firm on the ridge
Rain comes on July 4th
Grey men, wounded, weakened, fallen
