Plot Synopsis:

Director Edward Zwick's GLORY follows the 54th Regiment of Massachusetts, a troop of free black men who fought for freedom during the Civil War. When a wealthy white Bostonian takes charge of the unit, he faces the challenge of earning their respect and support as he prepares the soldiers for battle.

Production Notes:

  • Theatrical release: December 15, 1989.
  • Filmed on various locations in Massachusetts and Georgia.
  • There is a monument to the 54th Infantry in the Boston Commons, sculpted by Augustus Saint-Goudens.
  • Black soldiers, in fact, had a difficult time enlisting in the Northern army, which at first did not welcome them; when the Unionists finally changed their mind, African Americans often responded to the earlier slight by refusing to join. Of the 186,107 black soldiers in the Union army, 37,300 died; many of them were front-line men in the most dangerous positions. Seventy-five years after the Civil War, during World War II, many blacks still fought in segregated regiments.
  • GLORY features the first screen appearance of Andre Braugher.

    Screenwriter Kevin Jarre has a cameo as a Connecticut soldier.
  • Jane Alexander has a cameo as Shaw's (Matthew Broderick) mother.
  • Donovan Leitch Jr. is the son of musician Donovan.
  • Edward Zwick, the director of GLORY, was the cocreator, with Marshall Herskovitz, of television's THIRTYSOMETHING and ONCE AND AGAIN
