This 1989 film won Denzel Washington his first Oscar and helped put the sonorous tones of Morgan Freeman into the American consciousness. Edward Zwick's tale of the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, the first all-black regiment in the United States during the Civil War, won both acclaim and criticism—the former for showing the story of these overlooked American heroes, the latter for telling the story from a white officer's point of view. Historian Shelby Foote was hired to help with the historical accuracy of the film; a few years later he had a similar role in Ken Burns' seminal documentary The Civil War. He sure got some mileage out of that conflict. —Zack Smith
