Abstract:
Elite upper class white women were essential throughout North Carolina in creating Confederate monuments in the 50 years following the Civil War. Groups such as the Ladies Memorial Association and United Daughters of the Confederacy raised money for monument construction through various means while also raising public awareness. Throughout North Carolina, over 80 monuments were dedicated and in 1914, the efforts of these southern women were commemorated with a statue at the state capitol.
