Hand grenades showered down as the 54th charged. As soon as Shaw reached the crest of the parapet, though, he was struck by bullets and mortally wounded. When the regimental flag bearer also fell, Sergeant William H. Carney, a former slave who escaped on the Underground Railroad, threw down his rifle and picked up the Stars and Stripes to continue the charge.
“Glory” Regiment Attacks Fort Wagner, 150 Years Ago
Although Carney sustained two grievous wounds, he refused to allow the flag to fall again. The old flag never touched the ground. The Confederates, outnumbered nearly three to one, refused to cede Fort Wagner, and the 54th was forced to retreat with the rest of the Union forces. More than 40 percent of its combat troops and a third of its officers were killed or wounded at the Second Battle of Fort Wagner.
In spite of the Union defeat, the valor and patriotism displayed by the pioneering 54th Regiment in the Second Battle of Fort Wagner countered doubts about the combat ability of African-Americans. Nearly 40, of them gave their lives. Hope and Glory is a British-American comedy-drama - war film , written, produced and directed by John Boorman and based on his own experiences of growing up in the Blitz in London during the Second World War. The film was distributed by Columbia Pictures. The film tells the story of the Rohan family and their experiences of the Blitz as seen through the eyes of the son, Billy Sebastian Rice-Edwards.
Beginning just before the start of the Second World War , the film tells the story of the Rohan family: Billy, his sisters Sue and Dawn, and his parents Grace and Clive, living in a suburb of London. After the war starts, Clive joins the army, leaving Grace alone to watch over the children.

She almost sends Billy and Susie away from London, but pulls them back at the last second on the train platform when she realizes she cannot bear to be apart from them. Thus Billy stays in London for the rest of the war. Seen through the eyes of year-old Billy, the "fireworks" provided by the Blitz every night are as exciting as they are terrifying. His family does not see things in quite the same way as the bombs continue to drop, but their will to survive brings them closer together. The nightly raids do not provide the only drama, however, as his older sister, Dawn, falls for a Canadian soldier, becomes pregnant and, finding her life turned upside down, soon discovers the value of her family.
The family eventually moves to the Thames-side home of Grace's parents when their house burns down not in an air raid, but in an ordinary fire. This provides an opportunity for Billy to spend more time with his curmudgeonly grandfather.
The main film set was built on the disused runway at the former Wisley Airfield in Surrey and other scenes by the river were shot near Shepperton Lock. The "newsreel" footage shown in the local cinema contains scenes from the film Battle of Britain. I didn't know why this particular performance had affected me so deeply until I looked at the program and saw the name of the composition.
It read: God, the most formidable word ever spoken. What I experienced that night was the attempt of a very gifted composer to capture God — in all his amazing and variegated glory — in a single piece of music. In one sense, it was a triumphant effort, and in another sense, a dismal and embarrassing failure. For any human being to think that they could capture the glory of God in a single artistic statement is delusional at best and vain at worst. To squeeze what is infinite into what is finite is vastly more impossible than trying to cram the entire body of fully-developed elephant into a thimble.
No matter how gifted you are or how hard you try, it just won't happen! The composer, the conductor, and the orchestra had done marvelously well by human standards, but with their grandest effort, they only captured less than a drop of the never-ending ocean that is the glory of God. Glory is not a thing, like a shoe, a steak, a candle, or a cottage.
Those are particular physical items that could be so carefully described with words that you would immediately have an accurate picture in your mind of what is being talked about. One could draw a picture of a shoe or take a photograph of a cottage and you could see it and know what it was. But glory isn't like that.
No single drawing, painting, photograph, or verbal description could ever capture glory. Glory isn't so much a thing as it is a description of a thing.

Glory isn't a part of God; it's all that God is. Every aspect of who God is and every part of what God does is glorious. But even that's not enough of a description. Not only is he glorious in every way, but his very glory is glorious! With many other doctrines in Scripture, we typically run to a couple of default passages that describe the issue at hand, and we feel as if we're able to walk away with some general understanding of that topic. But that strategy doesn't work with the doctrine of God's glory, because God's glory lives above and beyond any type of description or definition.
You can say for sure that God is glorious — your Bible declares that he is — but you cannot accurately and fully describe in words the glory that Scripture declares. Perhaps the only workable path into some understanding of the grandeur of the glory of God is to read the entire Bible from cover to cover over and over again, looking for divine glory.
Because the glory of God isn't defined in his Word; no, his glory is so grand that it splashes across every page of his book. That being said, there are places where Scripture attempts to define the hugeness of the glory of God with the smallness of human language so we can get a glimpse of what it's like. For example: the prophet Isaiah, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, stretches human language to its furthest point of elasticity in order to give us a little glimpse of God's glory. He writes, "Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand? I've actually done this, and it would be a good word picture for you to attempt.
Go to your sink, turn it on, and see how much water you can cup in the palm of your hand before it starts spilling out.

Then, consider that your God can hold all of the liquid in the universe and not spill a single drop! Isaiah continues: "[He] has weighed the mountains in a scale … Behold, the nations are like a drop from a bucket [to him] … [He] stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them like a tent to dwell in" Isaiah 12, 15, The prophet is employing incalculably huge word pictures to help us have a miniscule glimpse of understanding into how glorious God is.
Yet even these very picturesque and helpful descriptions fall miserably short of capturing the awesome glory of God. So, when the Bible speaks of God's glory, what is it talking about? The doctrine of God's glory encompasses the greatness, beauty, and perfection of all that he is. In everything that he is and in everything that he does, God is greater than human description.
Every attribute and action of God is stunningly beautiful in every way. Each characteristic of God and every accomplishment from his hand is totally perfect. This is what we mean when we talk about God's glory.
The stunning reality of this universe is that there exists One who is the greatest, the most beautiful and the most perfect in every way. God is gloriously great, gloriously beautiful and gloriously perfect. There is none like him; he has no rivals, and no valid comparisons can be made to him.
