Harrison1 Brendan Harrison American Experience December 2, 2009 “Glory” 1. After suffering a minor wound during the Battle of Antietam, Captain Shaw is allowed to visit his family in Boston. During this visit he meets Fredrick Douglas and the governor of Massachusetts at a party, they tell him that they will be starting a regiment of African Americans and that they want Captain Shaw to command the regiment. He decides that he wants to take up the leadership role. 2. Colonel Shaw faced a number of challenges in attempting to get his men trained and ready for combat. Many of the African Americans do not have much education, such as do not know their right from left. Colonel Shaw also faced problems getting his regiment equipped properly. Some white officers outside of the regiment did not see the colored regiment as equal to white units so they did not help Colonel Shaw to get the proper equipment until he demanded for the items needed, such as shoes and socks for the men.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
