Civil War Journal - The Story of the 54th Massachusetts

The regiment's charge against Fort Wagner, as seen in Glory, occurred on July 18, 1863. 150 years ago this past week.

    I was horrified to learn that the video clip from the movie ‘Glory’ I had posted today was, in fact, a prank video. Someone on YouTube edited scenes from Rambo, etc, into the Fort Wagner sequence from the movie, but deep within the clip so it’s good and buried. I should’ve screened the whole thing before posting it. I’m truly sorry for posting that video and for any disrespect that it conveyed.

    I agree w/ Nefercat. Is someone TRYING to make light of scores of black soldiers who were lead to their slaughter by a dumbass white commander?

    • Bob Cesca

      Clearly so. Again, I’m tremendously sorry. I didn’t watch the whole video before posting this.

  • Nefercat

    Maybe my funny bone needs adjusting. I can’t quite see the comedy laugh riot in interspersing cuts from Pirates of the Caribbean and Rambo into the movie Glory, especially this scene.

      My sincere apologies. I had no idea that this was a prank video and I should’ve watched the entire thing before posting it. Who the hell would do something like that? I’m sick with disgust.
