Monuments and Memories

Tuesday, April 24, 5:30 p.m.
Monuments and Memories, one of the 
High Point University Department of History newest courses, explores the process of creating United States history from the American Revolution through the Cold War. For their capstone projects, students in the course have researched a historical site or monument, including Mount Vernon, Independence Hall, the Confederate memorial in Durham, Abraham Lincoln's Homestead, and the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Through their presentations, students will examine how and why these sites of historical memory have changed over time, and what these changes reveal about the ways that American history gets created.
