During the American Civil War, Colonel Robert Gould Shaw (Matthew Broderick), a white northern officer, is given the unpopular job of leading the first all-black unit: the 54th Regiment of Massachusetts. The company, which includes Emerson scholar Searles (Andre Braugher), gravedigger Rawlins (Morgan Freeman) and runaway slave Trip (Denzel Washington), are treated as inferiors by the white enlistees and other officers. When the unit is offered less than standard pay, Shaw supports them in their refusal to accept on principal. The 54th go on to prove themselves in the field of battle, making a suicidal attempt to penetrate Fort Wagner in South Carolina.

The heart-stopping story of the first black regiment to fight for the North in the Civil War. Glory stars Matthew Broderick, Denzel Washington, Cary Elwes and Morgan Freeman. Broderick and Elwes are the idealistic young Bostonians who lead the regiment, Freeman is the inspirational sergeant who unites the troops, and Denzel Washington, in an Oscar winning performance, is the runaway slave who embodies the indomitable spirit of the 54th Regiment of Massachusetts.
Despised by the South, distrusted by the North, the 54th overcame seemingly insurmountable odds in their fight to join the war for freedom. Underpaid and ill-equipped, facing certain death at the hands of the Confederacy, the 54th rose to every challenge; their courage, skill and sacrifice paving the way for the Union's ultimate victory.
Based on the true story of American's forgotten hero's, Glory is one of the greatest war movies ever made.
