I think you nailed it Hellcat. The 20th ME at Little Round Top was an interesting side-note to the battle before Michael Shaara and Ken Burns made them famous. The movie Glory is responsible for most of the 54th MA's fame today, though they did receive a significant bit of contemporary press coverage because they were the first FREE black regiment sent south. So, in short, better publicity!
