Work in Progress

Civil War statues were a flourishing industry in the last half of the nineteenth century. There was a rush to commemorate the Civil War, and every municipality wanted a memorial. A few companies, mostly in the north, supplied all the statues, north and south. In parts of the old Confederacy, these statues have become a political problem, if not embarrassment.
