This War Ain’t Over

(p.183) Conclusion
This War Ain't Over

Nina Silber

University of North Carolina Press

The book concludes by observing how the memory of the Civil War has long been, and continues to this day, to be contested ground, often pitting neo-Confederate defenders against those committed to racial justice. Some of that contest has been reflected through the continued relevance of Abraham Lincoln as well as the important symbolic space occupied, more recently, by the Confederate flag and Confederate monuments.

Keywords:   Barack Obama, Abraham Lincoln, Lost Cause, Cold War, Confederate flag
