Civil War Union Army Officer, Historian. He served as a Captain of the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, whose charge on Battery Wagner outside Charleston, South Carolina, is depicted in the movie, "Glory." He served with the regiment throughout the war, joining May 22, 1863, and mustering out March 27, 1865. After the devastating repulse at Fort Wagner left all of the unit's ranking officers, including Colonel Robert Gould Shaw, dead or wounded, Captain Emilio emerged as the 54th Massachusetts acting commander. He was the author of "A Brave Black Regiment" in which he recounted the exploits of the regiment. It is still in print and remains a prime resource for Civil War researchers. (bio by: Bob on Gallows Hill)
