Glory Civil War Movie Guide

This movie guide goes along with the incredible Civil War film "Glory". This is the one movie I make sure to show my students every year because of how powerful it is.

The film follows the true story of the 54th Massachusetts regiment: one of the first official African American units in the United States during the Civil War. It is based on the personal letters of Col. Robert Gould Shaw and accurately shows the struggle these brave men faced.

This film guide worksheets follow the movie and includes a matching to help students remember the main characters as well as open-ended and multiple choice questions. Lastly, there is an essay prompt in which students select one character and describe his journey.

This is an excellent way to guide students through the movie and assess their understanding.

Both an editable Google Doc version of the activity and complete answer key are both included for your convenience!

This resource can also be downloaded at a discount as part of the Civil War and Reconstruction Unit Bundle.
