Artifacts of the 54th Massachusetts

Video From the Massachusetts Historical Society

While filming our Boston Virtual Field Trip we had the privilege of getting inside access at the Massachusetts Historical Society to artifacts of the 54th Massachusetts, the famed USCT unit from the movie Glory, featuring the sword of Robert Gould Shaw that he had with him at Fort Wagner.
