About the film:

The heart-stopping story of the first black regiment to fight for the North in the Civil War, Glory (1989). Matthew Broderick and Car Elwes are the idealistic young Bostonians who lead the regiment; Morgan Freeman is the inspirational sergeant who unites the troops; and Denzel Washington, in an Academy Award-winning performance, is the runaway slave who embodies the indomitable spirit of the 54th Regiment of Massachusetts.

“A stirring and long overdue tribute to the black soldiers who fought for the Union cause in the Civil War”
