Heads Up: Confederate Monuments

We have had dozens of emails this week (and many of us have had a similar number of comments/questions on our personal Facebook pages) about Confederate monuments. Beginning tomorrow, some of the historians here at Emerging Civil War will begin sharing their insights on the discussion. Check out tomorrow morning’s post to kick things off.

In the meantime, for additional perspective, I’ll point you to a radio interview I had the opportunity to do this morning on The Voice of Maine radio network, hosted by Ric Tyler and Andy Neff. Ric is an old, dear friend; we used to work together years ago. It was a wonderful privilege to be on the air with him again.

    Link doesn’t work for me on iPhone?

    • I’ve tried the link on the computer and it works, but I have not been able to test it on a smartphone. Try copying it and then pasting it into a browser and see if that works.

    I posted a new link to the Emerging Civil War on the Essential Civil War Curriculum Facebook page and look forward to this discussion.

  4. The issue of the Civil War is not complicated. The Confederacy did stand for slavery read the Declaration of Immediate Causes.
