Glory is one of my favorite movies and this monument really does the 54th justice. If you're walking the freedom trail or even just visiting Boston, you should make time to see this memorial.

"Give'em hell, 54!"

Wonderful tribute to something so great that helped shaped our country. Words cannot describe what the 54th did for the US and you should do yourself a favor and visit this monument and read the inscriptions. The park itself is great.

I saw this memorial in 2011 and it reminded me of the unity in common cause between Black and White, Native American and other which aided thr victory of President Abraham Lincoln and the Union over the vile forces of slavery and racial prejudice. May we summon the spirit of Colonel Robert Gould Shaw and the brave soldiers of the 54th Massachusetts wherever and whenever the Republic is in peril. By such a virtue we overcome! Let us honor them and remember the cause of freedom and solidarity in that pursuit they epitomized.

A movie called " Glory " I seen on TV gave me insight and understand about this Monument. A must stop for anyone visiting Boston, especially if you enjoyed the movie.

* One note : you will also be standing by the two old living tree's on Boston Commons dating back before the start of the revolutionary war in 1775 at this Monument.

No one knows exactly when the elm tree's were planted, but there when the 1st Governor of Massachusetts John Hancock, who sold his cow pasture property for the location of the State House that was built.

Just think, *John Hancock & Paul Revere*, " Revere ", because he had the contract to put the copper on the State House dome roof 215 years ago ", most likely leaned up against these elm tree's also..

Robert Gould Shaw and the 54th Regiment Memorial, many say one of sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens best work, which took him almost 14 years of effort.

This is a late 19th-century monument by Augustus Saint Gaudens. It honours the first African American volunteer unit in the Civil War. Here you see a detailed bas relief that is quite impressive and worth spending a few minutes to enjoy if you find yourself in the area.

Make sure you stop to see this beautiful sculpture. "The Memorial to Robert Gould Shaw and the Massachusetts Fifty-Fourth Regiment is a bronze relief sculpture by Augustus Saint-Gaudens at 24 Beacon Street, Boston, depicting Col. Shaw and the 54th Regiment Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, marching down Beacon Street on May 28, 1863. It was unveiled May 31, 1897."

This is a memorial site. And since there are already lots of comments on the historical values, I am going to go us on the artistic details of this memorial site.

For example, the eagles (see the photos) are carved from a solid block of rock (? sandstone?) - just think the artistic work to turn a high block of stone into artistic work. You can look closely, and see the beauty on the details - but sadly time & mother nature has taken a toll on the site. But more sadly - people vandalized the artwork (see photos).

Very moving sculpture. This is a stop on the Black Heritage Trail which really provides some interesting information about a time in Boston that I wasn’t too informed about. The stops on the tour can be difficult to find but I found a free app for my iphone, free walking tours presents, which had the locations of the trail including this sculpture which made it much easier to find everything.
