Were You There?
For the Glory
June 19, 2006
Well, this is again THAT moment when I am trying to find the
words to tell you what this weekend's opening of FOR THE GLORY @
Gettysburg was like. ROB was vocally splendid, outrageous, tender
Those of us that knew and loved and lived the music of The
Civil War have no reason to be sad any more!!! The music, the
spirit is ALIVE AGAIN!!!
Rob is singing the Southern Captain, and that was as brilliant
a bit of casting as ever could be. This man lets his passion come
through in his singing, and there was hardly a dry eye when he had
finished VIRGINIA and LAST WALTZ FOR DIXIE. The
applause, the cheering, and then the silence as the words sunk in
The FOR THE GLORY incarnation that you will see in
Gettysburg is different. It is more compact, and thus even more
compelling. It is shorter, and some songs have been cut. The
majesty of the ones that remain need to be heard by you, so DO
Gettysburg, Pa, is not that far. You will NOT be pleased at YOU
if you do not get there. TOUR the sites, then come and hear the
sounds of history as only ROB and a talented cast can do them. For

I really hope to see you there. You will not regret the trip.
