Standing Soldiers, Kneeling Slaves: Race, War, and Monument in Nineteenth-Century America


Write The First Customer Review
Show Synopsis

The United States originated as a slave society, holding millions of Africans and their descendants in bondage, and remained so until a civil war took the lives of a half million soldiers, some once slaves themselves. Historian Kirk Savage explores how that history of slavery and its violent end was recognized in public--specifically in the sculptural monuments that dominated streets, parks, and town squares in 19th-century America. 67 photos.
