Words, Legacy, and Memory: What We Can Learn From the Inscriptions on Civil War Monuments
In the first month of History Research Fellowship, we looked at symbols and memories, specifically
those tied to the Civil War. We were particularly drawn to the difference in sentiments in the North and the South in the decades following the end of the Civil War and how they are reflected in the monuments. With access to the monument database in Maine and North Carolina, we picked these two states to be the representative of the Union and the Confederacy, respectively.
