Randy Edelman's broad score for this epic Civil War adventure is a vast tribute to the drama and tragedy of the battle that inspired Abraham Lincoln's ageless memorial address. While a couple of traditional cues appear, the score is derived primarily from Edelman's heroic main theme, which gives the score a hugeness befitting the historical battle and its widescreen depiction. Thunderous orchestrations, rendered intimate by acoustic guitar, speak eloquently for the soldiers who fought on both sides.
