Col. Robert Gould Shaw was the Colonel of the 54th Massachusetts Regiment, an all black unit during the Civil War. This unit was active from 1963 to 1865. The movie Glory was based on his character. He had to fight prejudice and discrimination on behalf of his soldiers and he was a target by the Confederacy because of his command of Black Soldiers.
Col. Robert G. Shaw is one of countless white men and women that risked/gave their lives for the cause of equal rights in America and why I have created this T-shirt for Black History Month. Because Black History is American History.
