Building on number 2, you could include some focus on the effect of the events described in "The Charge of the Light Brigade" such as what happened next.  You can give names and histories to the people who were killed also, and describe how it influenced their families.

I think a good idea would be to put in whether the sacrifice was worth it.  Did the charge materially help the British in the war or was it simply a waste?  I think that would be helpful because it would give a little more of the broad context to the charge.
