Shaw Memorial - Boston, Massachusetts


This sergeant is a member of the 54th Massachusetts Colored Volunteer Infantry reenactment group.  He stands as a one-man honor guard by Augustus St. Gaudens' famous monument to the 54th Mass. on Boston Common.
 
This is to wish you in the U.S. a festive and thoughtful Memorial Day weekend.
 
 
No posts for the next two weeks.  See you in June.

Welcome to the blog. I hope you get a chance to see the Shaw Memorial next time. I'll be posting more photos and background on this magnificent monument at other time, but I love this photo of the soldier in front of it and wanted to share it for Memorial Day.
