ATLANTA (AP) -- A band producing music videos at Civil War battlefields across the country has released a video filmed at an Atlanta ice cream shop on the site of an 1864 battle.

The Battle of Atlanta left the city in flames.

Union Gen. William T. Sherman watched the fighting from his vantage point on Copenhill, the site of the present-day Jimmy Carter Library and Museum.

Granville Automatic's song "Copenhill" is part of an effort to raise awareness about Civil War battlefields. The video, filmed at the Edgewood shopping center, was released this week.

The band recently filmed another video at the Coffee County, Alabama grave of Grancer Harrison, who lost several sons in the Civil War.

Another video at Glorieta Pass in New Mexico recounts the 1862 battle known as the "Gettysburg of the West."
