Summary

''Exploring the history of Civil War commemorations from both sides of the color line, William Blair places the development of memorial holidays, Emancipation Day celebrations, and other remembrances in the context of Reconstruction politics and race relations in the South. Blair uses Virginia as a starting point to provide a grassroots examination of these civic rituals and finds that the new traditions were often used to mobilize voters, define political options, and reinforce those who held power.''--BOOK JACKET.
