History is the story of the past, using all the available facts, and that nostalgia is a fantasy about the past using no facts, and somewhere in between is memory. In “How the Word is Passed”, Clint Smith encourages us to be critical of the stories that inundate our lives. The storymap explains some of the narratives embedded in these monuments to encourage visitors to take a more active, thoughtful engagement in the monuments.’ meanings, both obvious and hidden.
