AHA in the News, Monuments

The AHA’s Statement on the “White House Conference for American History” was recently featured in a New York Times piece covering the important “Call to Action” event organized by the Journal of the Civil War Era and supported by the AHA. This event saw historians go to “a dozen Civil War-related sites across the country, from New York to Nashville to St. Louis,” where they “simultaneously gathered with signs highlighting distortions in existing plaques and memorials, or things that simply weren’t being spoken of at all.”
