From the Publisher


“At last, the preservation of Civil War battlefields has received a comprehensive and critical historical treatment. Altogether Fitting and Proper combines a detailed accounting of federal, state, and private activity with an instructive critique of the role post–Civil War racism played in affecting and influencing various preservation efforts. Tim Smith reminds us, in very concrete ways, of the malleable nature of Civil War memory.” —Dwight T. Pitcaithley, New Mexico State University

“Smith’s latest venture into Public History is a tour-de-force. Must reading for the great numbers of people interested in battlefield preservation and interpretation.” —Edwin C. Bearss, National Park Service Historian Emeritus
