Civil War Memory

This page was inspired by historian Holly Genovese's Confederate Memory Reading List, which she posted on the blog of the Society for U.S. Intellectual History. The listed items include books, ebooks, and articles on how Americans' memory of the U.S. Civil War developed over time, and the political and cultural uses of memory of the war since its end in 1865. Understanding the ways in which the memory of the war has been used and abused is a necessary step toward understanding modern conflicts over Confederate memorials across the country.
