Product Description

This essay deals with the following topic:

The place of Confederate memorials and the Confederate flag itself within our society has become a heated debate as more and more states look to remove statues of Confederate military heroes and rename schools, streets, and public parks. The issue has become a passionate one as defenders see the fight to maintain Confederate memorials as a struggle to hold on to Southern culture and memory. The Lost Cause Myth of the Civil War is largely responsible for this modern political debate. Defined by historians as the efforts of former Confederate soldiers and Southern historians to preserve the honor and justice of the former Confederate cause, while a number of academics have sought to counter the effects of Lost Cause Myth, much work remains to settle confusion over the memory of the Civil War within our society.
