One of the more interesting memory studies from 2008 was Caroline Janney’s Burying the Dead but Not the Past: Ladies’ Memorial Associations and the Lost Cause (University of North Carolina Press). The book examines the history of the LMAs, the creation of Confederate cemeteries and the early evolution of the Lost Cause. If you do not have the time to read the book check out Janney’s recent Clinton School of Public Service address. It covers the broad outline of the book.
