Yesterday on Saturday July 18th 2015 was the dedication of a public mural celebrating the legacy of the 54th massachusetts regiment. The mural is part of the Artist-in-Residence partnership and was created by muralist Jared Bader and positioned on 41 William St (In the Carter's parking lot - on the Freestones wall)
The New Bedford Historical Society led by the President Lee Blake has worked to make sure New Bedford residents know about the 54th Massachusetts Regiment and the major role they had in fighting for freedom. Forty six New Bedford residents were members of the 54th. As a board member I am very honored to be a part of this moment in recognizing and celebrating the memory of these brave men.
