Episode Info:

On this week’s episode of Tying It Together with Tim Boyum, we tackle the issue of Confederate monuments. Statues that stood for more than 100 years are falling, but ancestors of veterans cite a 2015 law to put them back in place. This week we’ll explore the history behind these statues, what they mean, and how we move forward. We’ll talk with award-winning historian and author Adam Domby and UNC-Chapel Hill history professor William Sturkey. Plus, the great-grandson of a Confederate soldier gives us his argument why he thinks historians are wrong, and the statues should remain in place. It’s an episode that will elicit all kinds of emotion, but it’s essential to understand why the struggle over statues has led to protests, tears, and even violence.
