When you have completed both a15 and a17, ask me for a copy of the “Glory” questions.

glory film boston paradeYou’ll answer those questions as you watch the movie.   “Glory” is the true story of the 54th Massachusetts Infantry – the first military unit of all Black men – who fought for the North during the Civil War.

At the end of class, you’ll start a new blog post.   It is March of 1863.  You are a newspaper reporter in Boston writing an article on the 54th Infantry.   What details would you include to inform your readers about this newly-formed unit of Black soldiers?

Title = “Sept 25-26 Glory, Part 1”  /  100+ words.  Category = “movies”.  Add a relevant photo and spellcheck.  If you were absent, or were working on Quia during the movie, you can write a make-up post.  (Any topic of your choice, 100+ words, photo, etc)
