Robert Gould Shaw commanded the 54th Massachusetts Infantry, an African American regiment. Shaw had already fought in the battles of Cedar Mountain and Antietam with the 2nd MA Inf. when he took command of the 54th at the age of 25. Shaw was hesitant to leave his comrades for service in a regiment that he doubted would ever see action. Never the less, he would die leading them during their assault on Battery Wagner outside of Chalreston, SC.

More than 95% of all documentary Civil War photos were taken by northern photographers within Union lines, but among the best of the 5% is an early war series of photos of Mississippi soldiers in Florida. At least six views show Confederates drilling and, in this detail, at leisure in camp. Very cool photo from the Huntington Library.
