Description: Since the late nineteenth century, monuments have helped Texans celebrate their state’s past. But like any cultural artifact, the historical monument can be seen in different ways. This lecture will examine the gendered dimensions of commemoration and memory, focusing on the ways in which women’s organizations, such as the Daughters of the Republic of Texas, and male business leaders used monuments to create their own distinct interpretations of the state’s heritage.
