In this final chapter, the authors review the broad history of Florida Civil War monuments in state and national contexts. They discuss the challenge to those who seek to continue to erect monuments to the Civil War in the face of changing perceptions of that conflict. The authors also discuss the need to preserve for future generations the monuments, their original landscapes, and their full stories, not simply as monuments to the Civil War but as testimonies to struggles in its aftermath. The authors make a strong case for the continued and present-day importance of these monuments, especially when their full stories and meanings are understood.
