Robert Gould Shaw Memorial, Boston

Another great nearby attraction is the Robert Gould Shaw Memorial just a five-minute drive from the property. It commemorates the bravery of the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, led by Colonel Robert Gould Shaw. Formed shortly after Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, the 54th was one of the first African American units of the Civil War and even included the son of the leader Frederick Douglass.

On the evening of July 18, 1863, the 54th led the assault on Fort Wagner, and Shaw, at the front of the charge, was one of the first to die. Nearly half of the soldiers were captured, declared missing, or died from wounds they received that day. The courage of the 54th Regiment provided a powerful rallying point for the African Americans who longed for the fight for freedom.
