Two of Frederick Douglass' sons fought in the 54th Massachusetts (made famous in the movie "Glory"). Both Charles and Frederick Douglass Jr. survived the Civil War, and lived to see their father hang a picture of the 54th storming Fort Wagner in his front hallway at his Cedar Hill home in Washington, DC.
