This unit helps students see and understand the importance of commemorative public sculpture in the United States and explain how certain major themes in United States history have been commemorated. The unit begins with an examination of why we commemorate and focuses on several public memorials including the Minuteman Statue at Concord, the Memorial to Union and Confederate soldiers, and the Lincoln Memorial.
