No to be rude, but I believe your teacher wants you to research this information on your own. Clearly the movie made an impact on you, but if we gave you the answers as to what was historical vs. embellished, I think that it would defeat the purpose of the assignment.

I suggest researching the life and times of the commanding officer, Robert Gould Shaw, and also look up accounts recalling the 54th Massachusetts regiment. Here is a web page with links to other websites, soldiers letters, and other pieces of info that may help you in your research; http://extlab1.entnem.ufl.edu/Olustee/54th_MS_inf.html

That's all I can offer in good conscience. Best of luck.

Good reply.  I was trying to frame a reply to the student that said what you said .  As a teacher I  wanted to say find the answer yourself but tat sounded rude.  You as a writer came up with just the right words.  How can we express his opinions .
