What Was the Civil War and Why Won’t It Go Away? (Virtual)
Collective memories and understandings of the Civil War have been contested ever since Confederate forces surrendered to the Union Army on April 9, 1865.
In subsequent years, the proliferation of Confederate monuments across the country, as well as prominent displays of the Confederate Battle Flag, have led to much debate. These topics are central to artist Sonya Clark’s exhibition at deCordova, titled Monumental Cloth, The Flag We Should Know. Join Dr. Hilary Green to learn about how the Civil War ended; how it has been memorialized; and what that means for race relations in the U.S. today.
