    Lewis Douglass, one of Frederick Douglass’s two sons in the 54th Massachusetts Infantry, wrote this letter to his fiancée:  My Dear Amelia:  I have been in two fights, and am unhurt. I am about to go in another I believe to-  night. Our men fought well on both occasions. The last was desperate—we charged  that terrible battery on Morris Island known as Fort Wagner…Should I fall in the next  fight killed or wounded I hope to fall with my face to the foe….  This regiment has established its reputation as a fighting regiment, not a man  flinched, though it was a trying time. Men fell all around me. Ashell would explode and clear a space of twenty feet. Our men would close up again, but it was no use—  we had to retreat, which was a very hazardous undertaking. How I got out of the fight  alive I cannot tell, but I am here. My Dear girl I hope again to see you. I must bid  you farewell should I be killed. Remember I die in a good cause. I wish we had a  hundred thousand colored troops—we would put an end to this war. Good Bye to all.  Your own loving Lewis
