Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Historians use the image of the black regiment with white officers as a lens to view race and community in the US from the middle 19th century to the present. They consider the history of the regiment itself, the formation of collective memory and identity, and how Americans have responded to the story of the regiment and the Saint-Gaudens monument to it on Boston Common.

What People are saying about this

James M. McPherson
The centennial commemoration of Augustus Saint-Gaudens's monument to the 54th Massachusetts called forth this splendid anthology of original essays, which offer incisive commentaries on the black experience and racial ideologies during the Civil War and the ensuing century. Authors examine the media of history, memory, art, literature, music, and film to present the reader with a treat of unsurpassed richness.
