Col. Robert Gould Shaw

Col. Robert Gould Shaw


Col. Shaw led the first all-black unit of the Union Army. When he died, Confederates did not return his body for proper burial rather they put him in a mass grave with his men. In response, his father said; "We can imagine no holier place than that in which he lies, among his brave and devoted followers, nor wish for him better company"
