The Civil War historian Shelby Foote says that the suicidal charge on the Confederate position at Fort Wagner on July 18, 1863, by the black soldiers in the 54th Massachusetts Regiment had little military value but enormous meaning. "It has relevance today because it's yet another instance of a black man proving what white man never had to prove," Foote said. "They took a giant step forward that day. " But as Edward Zwick's magnificent Glory so movingly reminds us, the price was terribly high.

Last time the Phillies won the World Series - the only time, we're sorry to remind you - was in 1980. Twenty years ago. Seems like only yesterday, does it? Not to anyone under, say, 25, it doesn't. More than an entire generation has grown up aware only tangentially - from what Dad's told them or what they've read in the papers - that a Phillies team was ever good enough to go all the way. The sorry performance of the current Phillies does cast a shadow on this weekend's 20th-anniversary festivities commemorating That Championship Season.

The Rage's renewed progress came to a stop here last night as the Glory romped to an 88-73 victory at Morehouse Olympic Arena. It was the first time in four meetings this season that player-coach Teresa Edwards' squad defeated the Rage (7-11), who had won their last two games. Atlanta (9-9), which reached .500 for the first time this season, is beginning to play like the title contender it was expected to be because of the strength of its post players. That was apparent to the crowd of 3,575 who saw the Glory grab their sixth victory in their last seven games.

TO WHAT end is cloning? As do many people, I agree with Ms. Christine Flowers' Jan. 2 op-ed article ("I Love You Just the Way . . . I Am") regarding cloning humans. Even if every human being alive today were given the power to change his or her appearance, the human race would still be as versatile and beautiful as it is today. Jews and Christians believe that man was created in God's image. Muslims believe God created mankind in various colors, shapes and sizes, speaking a myriad of languages as testimony to his artistry and power.

A NY SISTAH GIRL knows that hair care is at the root of many an issue for some black folks. "The Tenderheaded Diaries" will explore this territory at the Painted Bride beginning tomorrow. The show will include skits on such familiar topics as "The Art of Greasing the Scalp" as well as video diaries of real people telling "unbeweavable" hair stories. The production, which premiered in Philly in December, was inspired by the book, "Tenderheaded: A Comb-Bending Collection of Hair Stories" by Juliette Harris and Pamela Johnson, (Pocket Books, $14)

Glory, an account of the first black regiment organized to fight the Confederacy, is a splendidly cast film that examines two kinds of courage. The volunteers needed the valor to face the enemy and the strength to confront the massive prejudice they encountered behind their own lines. They acquitted themselves nobly on both counts. At once moving and inspiring, the movie is Hollywood's finest - and most accurate - look at the war. "Glory" at the Free Library of Philadelphia, Central Library, Montgomery Auditorium, Logan Square, at 2 p.m. Sunday.

Ridley senior defenseman Steve Naumowich has proved Sean Ralph wrong. Ralph, a former standout Ridley goalie, was Naumowich's youth-lacrosse coach back in sixth grade. "At the time, everybody wanted to be attackmen or midfielders," Naumowich said. "They wanted to score the goals, get all the glory. "Coach Ralph was looking for some people to make the switch to defense. I remember him telling us that defensemen never get their names in the paper, never get any attention.

Dawn Staley was back in the neighborhood last night and played as if she had never left. The Rage point guard had a game-high 28 points, including six three-pointers, and her squad got back on the winning side with an 84-71 victory over Atlanta at the new Apollo on Temple's campus. Staley scored 10 of the last 11 points. "I'm scoring more because Lisa told me to be more aggressive," Staley said, referring to coach Lisa Boyer. The Apollo isn't far from Dobbins Tech, where Staley played her high school ball, or the North Philadelphia playground courts where she honed her game against the guys.

"Malena" is like an Italian version of "Hope and Glory," a WWII memoir, seen through the eyes of a boy, with lots and lots of girl-watching. In "Malena," the boy is Renato Amoroso (Giuseppe Sulfaro) a Sicilian who remembers the outbreak of WWII because it happened to coincide with something even more momentous - his first bicycle. He wants to show the bike to his teen-age friends, but they are distracted by something more compelling - the daily stroll of Malena, lonely bride of an Italian soldier away at the front.

Jon Stewart, who redefined political satire and energized a generation of activists during his 16 years, 2,676 episodes, and 20 Emmy awards as host of The Daily Show on Comedy Central, ended his tenure Thursday. He had help from a slew of visiting friends and former colleagues, including Samantha Bee, Lewis Black, Steve Carell, Mo Rocca, Rob Corddry, and Olivia Munn. "This show isn't ending. We merely are taking a pause in the conversation," Stewart, 52, said at the end of the night.

If any of the four productions in Vulcan Lyric's first summer festival claims a solid place on the Philadelphia landscape, it's Glory Denied , a tough, uncompromising piece by Tom Cipullo that seemed to light a fire under the cast in an effective if bare-bones presentation Tuesday in the Prince Theater's black-box space. Though the opera tells the true story of Col. Jim Thompson - the longest-held prisoner of war in American history, imprisoned in Vietnam from 1964 to 1973 - this is no docu-opera: While sketching the general outlines of Thompson's story, Glory Denied embraces the artificiality of the medium in ways that get at the emotional truth of the situation as nothing else can. Obviously, it's not a tune-inspiring story.

This is going to be something to see and that is seldom said around here anymore. For a five-year span, Citizens Bank Park trumped the Jersey Shore, the Poconos and every other site in our area as the place to be in the searing heat of summer. From the parking lot tailgates to the congested strolls out on Ashburn Alley, the ballpark was a happening as much as it was a place for a great baseball game. That is all gone now. Only the diehards and those with free or deeply discounted tickets plop into the blue seats to watch a team that has trouble hitting, pitching and fielding most nights.

ELMONT, N.Y. - Racetrack lifers, those who knew Bob Baffert well enough to wander inside Barn 1 at Belmont Park, congregated in a corner as American Pharoah walked around the shed row. One guy held Baffert's coffee while the trainer signed a Belmont Stakes program for him. Out on Hempstead Turnpike, just over a fence, traffic spilled by, past a Wendy's and a Subway across the street, which seemed a world away. Inside the fence, there was an air of contentment. Why would the glow wear off?

After the Decemberists played the driving, lyrically ornate "The Infanta" at the Academy of Music on Tuesday night, singer Colin Meloy made a confession. The song, he told the audience, "serves no practical purpose whatsoever. " It was a strange moment, not because he was wrong, but because the issue of practicality is not one that seems to weigh heavily on the band's collective conscience. Over the last 15 years, the quintet from Portland, Ore., augmented on stage by singers Kelly Hogan and Nora O'Connor, has built a devoted, ever-growing fan base with elaborate, hyperliterary folk tunes - a cross between a medieval history seminar and an advanced vocabulary quiz.

Roman Catholic made a huge breakthrough by slaying six-time defending Catholic League champ Neumann-Goretti for its first league crown since 2007. And it repeated as the District 12 Class AAAA titlist. The big question now is: Can the 24-2 Cahillites also conquer the state playoffs? They have mostly struggled in the tournament, going 3-6 with four first-round exits in six appearances. Roman's bid for redemption is headed by guards Tony Carr, Gemil Holbrook and D'Andre Vilmar, and forwards Nazeer Bostick, Paul Newman, and Manny Taylor.

March 1997. A South Jersey Group 1 basketball game was scheduled for 7 p.m. at Pitman, and Ron Myers - along with some of his teammates - arrived at the little school on Linden Avenue about 4:30 p.m. "There was a line around the building," Myers said, recalling a magical time in his life and in the history of Pitman basketball. "You drove up with your buddies and you see that and you're like, 'Wow. This is a big deal.' " Myers was standing in a hallway off a locker room below the Cherry Hill East gymnasium Saturday afternoon.

" They may as well also take down the "Valet Only" sign. Nobody's allowed in the driveway. There's a big fight next door at Boardwalk Hall on Saturday, Bernard Hopkins against Sergey Kovalev for the light-heavyweight title. There will be a strong crowd.

All the baloney about winning and losing could wait. Emory Clark only felt glad not to be rowing anymore. That's how Clark described in his diary the end of the gold medal race of the 1964 Olympics, when a boat out of Philadelphia got to stop first. Clark remembered the "groove of pain" he was in that darkened October evening just outside Tokyo, how relieved he was that the United States Olympic eight didn't have to find another gear, another "more exquisite level" of pain to upset the heavily favored Germans.

In 2014, there are plenty of easy, unflattering analogies to be made about Germantown and U.S. tennis, which have both seen better days. The glorious history of both, however, can still be found in a splendid Philadelphia relic, one whose foreboding brick walls have shielded and conserved. The Germantown Cricket Club, a green oasis in that gritty urban neighborhood, is one of this city's greatest and least-known sports treasures. Now that another Wimbledon is concluding without an American in sight and Germantown's many losses have included even its namesake high school, this still-active institution stands as a stark reminder of both decline and preservation.
