The Public Monument in North America

Memory and Memorials

Each student in the American Studies Senior Seminar was required to submit a twenty page seminar paper reporting on their investigation of a public monument as a cultural artifact. The material submitted on these pages represents a summary of important facts about each monument, but in no way reflects the complete body of each individual scholar's work. This is the first time much of this information has been presented within a public forum. Primary source materials from a variety of archives, internet sources, and contemporary publications have informed this website. (See Bibliography for more specific source information).

This page was designed for the American Studies Senior Seminar by Peg Tazewell using VisualPage. Comments, suggestions, more information are welcome!

Many thanks to Professor Melissa Dabakis, Bill Quimby, Sam Ottenhoff and Jonathan Tazewell for assistance, advice and moral support!
