dc.description.abstractThe naming of U.S. Army posts after Confederate generals is vital in understanding the process of reconciliation after the Civil War. The honoring of Confederate generals in such a manner was made attractive not only by a desire for sectional reconciliation, but by an understanding of the Civil War shaped by the Lost Cause. In choosing to name Army posts after those some might considered traitors, U.S. Armyleaders not only reflected national attitudes toward the Civil War, but shaped that attitude as well. Additionally, one must ask how the continued memorial to the Confederate cause as illustrated in U.S. Army installation names continues to influence the perception of Americans in regard to the Civil War, why it was fought, and what it achieved.en_US

My name is Michael Hill. My article, "A Question of Treason? Confederate Generals and U.S. Army Post Names" appeared in the Winter 2019 edition of JAMP. It is, as the title suggests, an investigation into the phenomena of US Army posts named in honor of Confederate officers. In light of the current call by some members of Congress to rename these posts I feel this article to be of particularly timely importance. I would like permission to post a link to a PDF version of the article on the home page of the University of Kansas History Department's website, where I am currently a PhD candidate.

I have attached to this email a copy of a PDF version of the article that I have. If JAMP would like to provide a higher quality version, that would be fine, of course.

Thank you for your assistance with this request. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask, or if there is some additional action that I need to take, please let me know.
