"This illustrated history details one state's commemorative response to a war in which more than 30,000 of its soldiers died in military service: 101 Confederate monuments--and eight Union memorials, including one honoring African American troops--were dedicated across the Tarheel State between 1865 and 1961. Committee minutes, financial records, legal documents, and contemporaneous accounts are quoted"--Provided by publisher.
