"The first comprehensive analysis of the U.S. Civil War Centennial, Troubled Commemoration masterfully depicts the episode as an essential window into the political, social, and cultural conflicts of America in the 1960s and confirms that it has much to tell us about the development of the modern South."--BOOK JACKET.

Review: Troubled Commemoration: The American Civil War Centennial, 1961-1965

User Review  - Mark Cheathem - Goodreads

Of necessity, this book is a bit dry in spots due to its look at the bureaucracy of the Civil War centennial commission. Still, an interesting read. I especially liked the chapter on popular culture and the centennial. Read full review
