Erection of Confederate Monuments Timelines: Catto Postscript

The erection of hundreds of Confederate memorials begins aggressively throughout the South and in some Northern cities, peaking in the early 1920’s. The second big surge of monument erections happened with the Supreme Court’s Brown v. Board decision, as part of the white resistance movement. Today there are over 1,500 Confederate monuments on public land and numerous schools and public buildings names for Confederates.
