It's about General Armistead and General Hancock who both atteneded West Point together and were close friends but ended up on the opposite sides of the war. Part of it is a quote of Armistead who said, "If I ever fight against you may God strike me dead."

Armistead was inujured while leading his men in Picketts Charge (often shown with his hat on his sword, even tho it never happened) and he died two days later. Hancock was also wounded in the same battle but wasn't killed.
