“We want 'em to know that we went down, standing up!”

Morgan Freeman delivers a powerful prayer during one of my favorite scenes in the movie Glory, when the soldiers of the 54th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment gather for prayer on the eve of the tragic Battle of Fort Wagner on July 18, 1863 during the U.S. Civil War.


Tomorrow we have to meet the judgment day.

Heavenly father, we want you to let our folks know that we died facing the enemy.

We want 'em to know that we went down, standing up!

Amongst those that are fighting against our oppression.

We want 'em to know heavenly father that we died for freedom.
