📘🎥Friday's Film Adaptation🎥📘: One Gallant Rush by Peter Burchard and Lay this Laurel by Richard Benson & Lincoln Kirstein

Lay This Laurel: An Album on the Saint-Gaudens Memorial on Boston Common Honoring Black and White Men Together Who Served the Union Cause with Robert Gould Shaw and Died with Him July 18, 1863 by Richard Benson & Lincoln Kirstein
One of the most compelling Civil War stories is that of the Fifty-Fourth Regiment, made up of African-American soldiers who volunteered for the Union Army. Their heroic but futile battle at Fort Wagner was memorialized by sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens in Boston Common in 1897. Both the commemorative book and limited-edition volume depict the monument in stirring detail while celebrating its 100-year anniversary. For photography connoisseurs and Civil War buffs.
First Edition, 1973

One Gallant Rush: Robert Gould Shaw and His Brave Black Regiment by Peter Burchard
This wonderful book: One Gallant Rush: Robert Shaw and His Brave Black Regiment is an interesting read. This in a side of Civil War history not often told. A true historical saga dramatized in the major motion picture.

'...written with authority and quiet power, this is the history of a period noted for sweeping action and resounding with the names of great men and women....The decisions they made and the things they did serve as dramatic counterpoint to a story that in the best sense of the term is grand.'--Saunders Redding

A young, white army officer is assigned to lead an all-black unit in the Civil War.
