New book about Statuary Hall and Confederate monuments

Oct 14, 2017
As the public debate over monuments accelerates, I hope my new book, "The Civil War in Statuary Hall" will provide some historical background. It is the first book to give a brief history of how Statuary Hall was created, during the war, and how since 2003 the debate over who should be honored and who should not is getting hotter. The December 21 removal of the Robert E. Lee statue is the latest controversial event. Here is a picture of the cover, which shows several current and former honorees, including Jefferson Davis, Chief Washakie, and others. You can get it at
