Throughout Tennessee, Civil War monuments stand tall across the landscape, from Chattanooga to Memphis, and recall important events and figures within the Volunteer State's military history.
In Tennessee Civil War Monuments, Timothy S. Sedore reveals the state's history-laden landscape through the lens of its many lasting monuments. War monuments have been cropping up since the beginning of the commemoration movement in 1863, and Tennessee is now home to 400 memorials. Not only does Sedore provide commentary for every monument—its history and aesthetic panache—he also explores the relationships that Tennessee natives have with these historic landmarks.
A detailed exploration of the monuments that enrich this Civil War landscape, Sedore's Tennessee Civil War Monuments is a guide to Tennessee's spirit and heritage.
