Before 1861, white Southerners cherished many artifacts from the Revolutionary War. The region was filled with family mementos, household relics, and military objects dating from the Revolution, as well as many houses belonging to Revolutionary figures. After 1861, each side declared they were the true heirs of the Revolution, and soldiers in both armies competed for possession of these objects for their symbolic value.
