What People are Saying About This

Rebecca Sharpless

. . . a variety of fine essays bring Texas history squarely into current debates on popular memory. The authors demonstrate that there is not just one past, but many, varying as much by race and ethnicity and political persuasions as the state's people. From Juneteenth to LBJ, readers will find much to consider about the meaning of memory in a state whose motto could be 'Remember the Alamo!' (Rebecca Sharpless, Texas Christian University)

John Boles

“ important revisionist piece of Texas history that deserves wide readership. No other book does exactly what it does, and while myth has been talked about with regard to Texas history, such a sophisticated ‘meditation’ on the complicated relationship between collective (or folk) memory and scholarly, archives-based history exists no where else in print.”--John Boles, Journal of Southern History
