      Race and Reunion: The Civil War in American Memory By David W. Blight New York Times Book Review, March 4, Nearly a century and a half after it ended, the Civil War remains the central event in American history and an enduring source of public controversy. Abstract That slavery was largely excised from the cultural memory of the Civil War in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, particularly by white Americans, is well documented; Slavery and the Civil War in Cultural Memory moves beyond that story of omission to ask how slavery has been represented in U.S. culture and, necessarily, how it figures into some of the twentieth century.
