It seems to me that the dominant theme of the 1930’s was the Great Depression and not the Civil War. At least in my family and their contemporaries the “memory” was how to feed one’s family and make ends meet in desperate times. Think The Waltons TV show which my mother said reminded her so much of her youth. These people came out of that era with a hardened sense of frugality and strength; and it conditioned an entire generation for the rest of their lives. They certainly had much more to worry about than a long past war and had moved on.
