I'm putting together a booklist of avalible books to buy about Confederate monuments by state. Many of these volumes appear to be pre-2015, so less politically charged.

So far there is nothing on monuments in Alabama, Oklahoma, Missouri, Kansas, West Virginia, New Mexico, Arizona, California and the scant rare couple in Nevada, Idaho, Montana and Utah.

I've long meant to write a review of the short work above, but with all the current negativity haven't been able to muster the interest or effort. It's not about specific monuments, per se, but contains a great deal of information about the growing trend in the latter Nineteenth and early Twentieth Centuries to erect them as memorials to the dead and the Confederacy in general. It was written before the current crisis and is more a history of the monumental movement than a justification or excuse and I highly recommend it in that vein.

I bought the one about Georgia monuments early in 2018 in anticipation of a road trip through Georgia in June of that year. It came in handy.

I’ll take that as a ringing endorsement.

im pretty saddened that the Soldier Summit monument in Utah isn’t mentioned much.
Let me clarify...the second Georgia book in your list and it is an endorsement. I didn't have time to stop and see all the ones I wanted to, but I did see 2 that I didn't know about until I bought that book...one in Vienna, GA and one in Valdosta, GA.

Georgia's Confederate Monuments: In Honor of a Fallen Nation by Gould B. Hagler Jr. I just bought. It's a 500 page coffee table and was published in 2014. Hagler is the former commander of the John B. Gordon Camp SCV. The big one in Atlanta.

And @7th Mississippi Infantry I strongly recommend the above mentioned books about Mississippi and Tennessee's monuments by Timothy S. Sedore. Been reading it today. He has pre-removal pictures of the Forrest Park equestrian monument/gravesite in Memphis on the chapter about it. He treats it very neutrally, hands-off in description, and it has (as of Spring 2020) updates about it's December 2017 removal.
