Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Friday, May 26, 2017
I got this slightly-battered ex-library softcover from Better World Books, planning to release it on Boston Common near the magnificent memorial to Robert Gould Shaw and his men by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. (This book was the inspiration for the 1989 film, and includes personal details of Shaw's life, the political climate, and the challenges facing the first all-black regiment formed in the US during the Civil War.)

[There's a TV Tropes page on the film and on the historical events.]

I plan to leave this book, bagged against the elements, near the awesome Saint-Gaudens memorial to Shaw and his men, at the corner of the Common across from the State House. Hope the finder enjoys it!
