Mapping Confederate Memory in Mobile

"The past is never dead. It's not even past." -- William Faulkner

This Alabama Humanities Alliance project seeks to provide a historically contextualized account of Mobile's confederate monuments and memorial spaces in order to help the people of Mobile engage in informed and respectful conversations about the fate of these monuments.  The research for this project was conducted largely by students under the direction of David Messenger of the History Department.
