    Robert Gould Shaw’s drinking and gambling buddies, his fellow Harvard oarsmen and comrades in white regiments all recorded his gaiety, cheerful temper, and frank, easy manners. But he came of crusading stock. The namesake grandfather summoned the sixteen-year-old to his deathbed and exhorted him to use his “example and influence” against the ills besetting the republic, intemperance and slaveholding. His sickly mother constantly reminded him that if he worked for righteousness she could fa [...]

    I read this little history after seeing 'Glory', the movie based upon it. It is to be noted that this was not the only book Burchard wrote about Shaw and the 54th Massachusetts.

    This volume about the 54th Massachusetts Volunteers is one of the books on which the movie "Glory" was based. While interesting, I thought the author dwelled too much on the prewar life of Shaw. He comes across as a pleasant enough fellow during this period, but leads the idle life of a rich young man without much purpose. The raid on the town of Darien is portrayed, and, of course, there is the stirring assault on Fort Wagner. In those situations, we see something of the determined and heroic R [...]

    The book that was the basis for the movie "Glory." Good history of Robert Shaw and the 54th Massachusetts in the Civil War.

    A short but sweet book telling the story of a naïve young man who evolved into a confident officer after enduring many hardships in the army, eventually accepting the high responsibility as Colonel of America's first black regiment. While he was no fanatic, he was a dedicated soldier who simply wanted to do what he believed, was right for his country and when he became leader of the 54th, he was prepared to die for it. In a strange way, this makes him even more admirable. I highly recommend thi [...]

    12/29/08 One of my favorite (based-on-a-true-story) movies has a NF book about the historical events! I am so excited my library owns a copy and can't wait to delve into this one, too!5/17/09 I did like this book. It took me almost 5 months to read it because I got involved in quite a few faster reads (both Fic and NF). This book was well-written, but it did not have me driving to finish it until near the end--when I knew what was coming and wanted the full details. Unfortunately, the book did n [...]

    A wonderful short history of the bravery of the men of the 54th Massachusetts Regiment during the Civil War and their brave young officers, a glimpse into the bravery of former slaves and their love of freedom. Robert Gould Shaw's letters are beautiful and a sad reminder that all war grants is loss and destruction and for what? worth reading.

    I received Peter Burchard's book One Gallant Rush as a gift from my parents in the early 1990s. In hindsight I wish I had not waited almost twenty years to read Mr. Burchard's book because I really enjoyed it. I became interested in the American Civil War as a young boy after seeing the movie Glory on television, a movie based largely One Gallant Rush.

    The other book Glory was based on . . . clearly! Good read, though a bit dry . . . (well . . . it was either this book or Lay This Laurel that was a dry read . . . the other was a bit better). Honestly . . . one of the rare cases where I preferred the movie to the books!

    Story tells of an ignored part of the Civil War. Good to bring a forgotten group of men into the history books.

    Good, even if it didn't give me as much insight as Shaw's letters.
