Museum of the Confederacy Discontinues Sale of Black Confederate Toy Soldiers
I never doubted for a moment that the Museum of the Confederacy would do the right thing and pull these ridiculous items from their shelves. Thank you. Just another reason why I fully support the mission of the Museum of the Confederacy.
In addition to this situation, Civil War Memory was instrumental in bringing about the removal of poorly-researched information sheets on black Confederates at Governors Island in New York City.

"In this stunning and well-researched book, Kevin Levin catches the new waves of the study of memory, black soldiers, and the darker underside of the Civil War as well as anyone has... Levin is both superb scholar and public historian, showing us a piece of the real war that does now get into the books, as well as into site interpretation."
