Polarizing debates over their meaning have intensified into legislative maneuvering to preserve the statues, legal battles to remove them, and rowdy crowds taking matters into their own hands. In this narrative about the movements to raise, preserve, protest, and remove Confederate monuments, Karen L. Cox explores what these monuments mean to those who erected them as well as the stories of the civil rights activities, Black elected officials, and movements of ordinary people who fight to have them removed.
