Standing Soldiers, Kneeling Slaves explores history of slavery and its how aggressive end was told in public spaces that came to dictate streets, parks, and town squares in 19th-century America.
Looking at monuments built and unbuilt, author Kirk Savage shows how the greatest time of monument building in American history took place while people with different races had to struggle over race, gender, and collective memory.
Kirk Savage is the author of Monument Wars: Washington D.C., the National Mall, and the Transformation of the Memorial Landscape (Princeton) and the editor of The Civil War in Art and Memory.
Standing Soldiers, Kneeling Slave probes a host of enthralling questions and remains the only sustained investigation of post-Civil War monument building as a process of national and racial definition, according to a review published in the Princeton University Press website.
