Orange County Register: CSUF public history students create archive that examines Confederate memorials . “The ongoing removal of Confederate monuments has become part of a major trend in American history.

In Benjamin Cawthra’s Introduction to Public History class at Cal State Fullerton, for a second semester, students are adding to the unfolding story through a class project called Mapping Confederate Monuments. The project examines Confederate memorials — some that remain and some removed from public spaces — through an online archive.”
