KINSTON, Ala. (AP) -- A band producing music videos at Civil War battlefields and historic sites across the country has released a video filmed at an Alabama gravesite.

Granville Automatic's song "Grancer Harrison" is part of an effort to raise awareness about Civil War battlefields and efforts to preserve them. The video, filmed at Harrison's grave near the southern Alabama town of Kinston, was released this week.

The song recounts the life of Harrison, who lost several sons in the Civil War.

Granville Automatic earlier filmed a video about the 1864 Battle of Atlanta; and at Glorieta Pass, a Civil War battlefield in New Mexico.

The band's music and video project, "An Army Without Music: Civil War Stories from Hallowed Ground," includes songs based on events in Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee and several other states.
