"Glory" Movie Trailer

 

 
Description


"Glory" tells the little-known story about the first black regiment to fight for the North in the Civil War –
the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry. 

They gained international fame for their courageous assault on Fort Wagner near Charleston, South Carolina in 1863.
The 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry will forever be remembered for their bravery, despite the racism they
encountered from others.

With its positive portrayal of strong Black men who courageously fight for their country, "Glory" is a
Civil War film not to be missed!

Denzel Washington won his first Academy Award for his role as Private Trip in this movie.

 
Trivia


• "Glory" is based on a historical fact.  The 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry of all-black soldiers really did exist.
They were one of the first all-black United States military troops formed after the Emancipation Proclamation. 
The actual troop members in Glory are dramatizations, but the story is based on the real Colonel Robert Gould
Shaw’s letters.
 
• The original script for Glory focused more on Colonel Robert Gould Shaw than the African-American troops. 
At Denzel Washington’s urging, the script was changed to focus more on the struggles of the African-American
troops and their bravery.  Denzel Washington agreed to do Glory after the changes were made.

• The Boys Choir of Harlem sing the vocals on the movie soundtrack.
