Civil War Monuments and Memory: Favorite Stories and Fresh Perspectives from the Historians at Emerging Civil War

$29.95

By Jon Tracey and Chris Mackowski

This collaborative work explores some of the ways people monumented and memorialized the war and how those markers have impacted our understanding of it. Erecting monuments and memorials became a way to commemorate the past, but they also became important tools for remembering that past in particular ways. Monuments honor, but they also embody the very real tension between history and the way we remember that history.
