Historical Context of Civil War Monuments

This is a very good panel discussion on the context of Civil War monuments, specifically confederate monuments. The panelists are David Blight of Yale University, Gaines Foster of LSU, and Karen Cox of UNC-Charlotte. The moderator is James Grossman, Executive Director of the American Historical Association.

The video’s description reads, “Panelists talked about the historical context in which Civil War monuments were constructed and what they came to symbolize.”
