Another assignment, I was to research three JSTOR articles, on a topic of my choice, seeking understanding of the authors use of, sources, methodology, content and conclusion. The subject matter for me was, Confederate monuments erected in Northern Florida by the United Daughters of the Confederacy. This information was to be presented in a 5 minute video. I definitely practice making and presenting on videos. This subject is one of my thesis possibilities.
The three article I chose,
John W Winberry’s 2015, article, titled, “lest we forget”: the Confederate monument in the Southern townscape.
W. Stewart Town’s 1978, article, titled, Honoring the Confederacy in the Northwest Florida: the Confederate Monument ritual
Jennifer L. Gross’s 2008, article, The United Daughters of the Confederacy, Confederate Widows, and the lost cause: “we must not forget or neglect the Widows”.
“If the South has its symbol, it is a statue of the Confederate soldier which stands in the county seat.
Hands resting on the barrel of his grounded rifle, knapsack and a blanket roll on his back,
he stares in stony silence to the north whence came the invading Yankee armies” (Hart 1976, p.1).1
