Blue-eyed child of fortune : the Civil War letters of Colonel Robert Gould Shaw

Author: Robert Gould Shaw; Russell Duncan
Publisher: Athens : University of Georgia Press, ©1992.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : Biography : State or province government publication : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Through nearly two hundred letters, the son of a wealthy Boston abolitionist wrote of his experiences as the commander of the all-black 54th Massachusetts Infantry in the Civil War. The portrait that emerges is of a man more divided and complex--though no less heroic--than the Shaw depicted in the celebrated film Glory.
