We are an organization of volunteers dedicated to preserving the history of the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry Regiment and Black Soldiers in the Civil War. We serve as a living monument to commemorate and honor the men who served, lost their lives and health in the Civil War, particularly those members of our namesake, the 54th Regiment of Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry; we strive to have the 54th Massachusetts bring history to life as accurately and authentically as possible so that people that come to see us will gain a better understanding and appreciation of their heritage and history.
We dedicate ourselves to keep alive the proud heritage of the 54th by preserving and authentically interpreting the lives of Black Civil War soldiers and their officers. We have committed ourselves to the education of the company membership and general public as to the lifestyle, military service and general values of the Black Civil War soldier through an authentic presentation of living history activities including battle reenactments, interpretive programs, training seminars, and similar programs.
