Civil War “Stuff” and Memory
June 25 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
In 1867, the U.S. counted 1.8 million veterans from both sides of the Civil War, about 5% of the population. The experiences of these men, and others who lived through the war, was built upon “stuff” they came in contact with during and after the war. This class examines some of the things from the Civil War – battlefields, weapons, cemeteries, and monuments – folks utilized to make sense of the conflict or reframe their memories of the war. This class examines how memory of the Civil War, through the creation of “stuff”, is still a persistent conversation piece in contemporary U.S. society.
