The Memory of Violence

The Memory of Violence

The Lattimer Massacre of 1897

(p.51) 3 The Memory of Violence
An Archaeology of Structural Violence

Michael P. Roller

University Press of Florida

Chapter 3 describes the historical context immediately leading up to the Lattimer Massacre, then recounting the event itself and the trial that followed as recorded in textual sources. This history is followed by an account of the archaeological survey conducted in the autumn of 2011 with the members of BRAVO (Battlefield Research and Volunteer Organization) of Monmouth, New Jersey. A theoretical context for understanding explicit moments of subjective violence without distracting from the contexts of structural or objective violence is also presented here.

Keywords:   BRAVO, Battlefield Research and Volunteer Organization, Lattimer Massacre, violence
