When Massachusetts began erecting monuments and memorials in the 1860s, few public voices opposed the movement. This article represents the opponents' view. Although the author was careful to assure readers that he honored the past, he argued that money spent on monuments diverted funds from the necessitiesof the present time. Here he openly criticized the otherwise generally popular movement by town leaders to erect memorials on historic sites.
