Hold At All Costs

What is the first part* of that Iced Earth song from? Is it an actual quote?

* "A mile or so away, my dearest friend in this world.........good lord strike me dead."

No, it's about Jon Schaffer's boyfriend.

It's not a direct quote as far as I know, it's paraphrased from a situation.
Union General Hancock and Confederate General Armistead had been best friends before the war, but now they fought for opposing sides, opposite sides of the field, but the two of them had sworn that they would not die at the hands of the other.
Oddly, it's said that after Picket's Charge, Armistead was mortally wounded and his last request was to see General Hancock so the two could meet again before he died.
Yeah, I know what I'm talking about.

Yep, true story, but not a direct quote.

Have you ever seen the movie Gettysburg?

On a similar note, I found out Battle Hymn of the Republic is public domain, which means I can use the lyrics in a Living Martyr song

In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me:
As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free,
While God is marching on.

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.
