US public memory, rhetoric, and the National Mall

by Roger C Aden | 26 April 2018
US Public Memory, Rhetoric, and the National Mall examines "the nation's front yard," understanding it as both a public face the United States presents to the world and a site where its less apparent moral story is told. This book provides a uniquely thorough, interdisciplinary, and integrated examination of how the National Mall shares a moral story of the United States and, in so doing, reveals the soul of the nation. The contributors explore 11 different memorials, monuments, and museums found across the Mall, considering how each rhetorically remembers a key element of the nation's past, what the rhetorical memory tells us about the nation's soul, and how each site must thus be understood in relation to the commemorative landscape of the Mall.
