    Designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens whom spent 14 year in its creation. Shaw's tale is best told via the 1989 film "Glory." Gaudens used 40 men to model for this work. More info available via our blog Read more

    Watch "Glory" to learn about Robert Gould Shaw and the 54th Regiment. Great film.
