Registration is now open for Seminary Ridge Museum’s Annual Symposium,“Monu
As the guns were silenced, Union and Confederate veterans and the public began erecting monuments to memorialize the Civil War. Contentious debates surrounded the construction of these monuments from the very beginning. In the last five years, the debate has spilled onto the front pages of newspapers across the nation. This year, Seminary Ridge Museum’s annual Symposium will take a deep look at Civil War memory and monuments. On March 21, join a panel of historians, at the heart of the world’s largest outdoor sculpture garden, as we look at the role Civil War monuments have played in shaping our country’s remembrance of the conflict.
