The work marks the 140th anniversary of the fateful Civil War Battle of Gettysburg. Premiered in 2003 by the Philadelphia Orchestra at the Kimmel Center, the work is comprised of three movements: "Honor and Sacrifice" (by Scurria), "Wounded Fields" (by Heitzeg) and "The Last Full Measure" (co-written by Heitzeg and Scurria). Written for young people, the piece "is about how each of us personally reconciles the events of Gettysburg. It’s about social justice, human rights and the hope for positive change in the future," says Heitzeg.
