The different memories of the Civil War held by the North and South and reflected in decades of subsequent monument building began to take form during Reconstruction. For the South, this memory took the form of the Lost Cause narrative, which sought to vindicate the Southern soldier and allow veterans to live in a reunited nation with dignity. For the loyal northern states, the narrative developed around a focused effort to care for the Union soldier dead and veterans to the exclusion of those of the former Confederacy. In Florida during Reconstruction, Confederate monuments focused on remembering local soldier dead and were erected under the watchful eye of the Union occupation.
