Audio mp3 delivered by Matthew Broderick


Good morning, gentlemen!

I am Colonel Robert Gould Shaw.

I am your commanding officer.

It is a great pleasure to see you all here today.


It is my hope that the same courage, spirit, and honor which has brought us together will one day restore this union.

May God bless us all!

We will commence with forming companies!
