While the book covers only the 110 monuments built between 1865 to 1961 (101 Confederate, 8 Union, and 1 African-American), the author does a great job of giving an historical summary with respective photographs in black and white.

From well-known battlefields, such as Manassas, Fredericksburg, and Appomattox, to lesser-known sites, such as Sinking Spring Cemetery and Rude’s Hill, Sedore leads readers on a vivid journey through Virginia’s Confederate history. Tablets, monoliths, courthouses, cemeteries, town squares, battlefields, and more are cataloged in detail and accompanied by photographs and meticulous commentary. Each entry contains descriptions, fascinating historical information, and location, providing a complete portrait of each site. Much more than a visual tapestry or a tourist’s handbook, An Illustrated Guide to Virginia’s Confederate Monuments draws on scholarly and field research to reveal these sites as public efforts to reconcile mourning with Southern postwar ideologies. Sedore analyzes in depth the nature of these attempts to publicly explain Virginia’s sense of grief after the war, delving deep into the psychology of a traumatized area.

It's so easy
Excellent. It tells you about all of the Confederate Monuments in the state of Virginia and has pictures of each monument.
Whitescar
Very comprehensive and descriptive, but lacks a little in organization and in identifying the location.

Guide books are always nice additions to the library of any student of the American Civil War, especially those who like to travel to the historic sites or areas of particular interest. Guide books can be broad in scope, such as Frances H. Kennedy's "The Civil War Battlefield Guide" or narrowly focused, as Timothy S. Sedore's, "An Illustrated Guide to Virginia's Confederate Monuments." They can take you to well known places such as Gettysburg National Military Park and Richmond, Virginia's Monument Avenue, or they can take you to lesser known sites often overlooked and unvisited by others, such as Stones River National Battlefield in Murfreesboro, Tennessee or the Little Fork Rangers monument located at 16461 Oak Shade Road, Rixeyville, Virginia.

As the United States was torn apart by the Civil War, the Southern states closest to the territory held or occupied by the Federal forces were destined to see the bulk of the war's hardest fighting. Positioned on the northern border of the Confederacy and containing the Confederate capitol located at Richmond, just one hundred miles from Washington, D. C., Virginia became the most fought over soil in the country. No other state, Union or Confederate bore the brunt of war more than Virginia.

It should come as no surprise then that Virginia would have a plethora of monuments dedicated to the war and its legacy, to Virginia's soldier sons and Confederate heroes, as well as the battles and smaller engagements fought on its soil.

Timothy S. Sedore has written a guidebook of Virginia's Confederate monuments, appropriately titled, "An Illustrated Guide To Virginia's Confederate Monuments." He has located and photographed all of Virginia's Confederate monuments, transcribed the inscriptions written on them, and where possible provided a brief history of each monument.

Dividing Virginia into five parts the chapters in Mr. Sedore's book covers the width and breadth of Virginia from north to south, and moving from west to east, progressing from the Shenandoah Valley and northwest Virginia, through Southwest Virginia; Richmond, Northern Virginia and the Piedmont; The Northern Neck, Middle Peninsula, Eastern shore and Eastern Southside; to Petersburg, the Southside West of Petersburg, and Central Virginia West of Richmond.

Locating and photographing Virginia's Confederate Monuments and transcribing the inscriptions on them was a Herculean task, and compiling all of the information in a single volume to be easily pulled off a shelf and taken on the road, was a monumental undertaking of which the author was gloriously successful. Students of the Civil War in Virginia and tourists alike are sure to find Mr. Sedore's book extremely useful.

The first thing I must say about this Illustrated Guide to Virginia's Confederate Monuments is that it is not mean to be read, as I did, cover to cover, in order. Clearly, author Timothy S. Sedore intended this to be a reference, something found in the dusty archives of a collegiate library. Had he or his editors desired it to be a lovely bit of recreational reading found on the coffee tables of Civil War enthusiasts, it would have glossy color photos within, rather than what I presume are the author's own black and white snapshots of differing qualities, ranging from pretty to blurry with a side of why didn't he say how big this one is. I certainly couldn't find any photo credits that would indicate otherwise, or any specific reference to where the pictures came from.

The second thing I have to say about Sedore's work is that it is also lacking in proper foot or end notes, bibliography, or any other form of proper references for the historical information included along with his transcriptions of the monument inscriptions. This severely diminishes the quality and reliability of his hard work in finding this information, that he does not say from whence it came. I once lost a letter grade on a ten page history paper in an undergraduate course, and while the jacket flap of this book tells me the author is an English professor, SIU press has no excuse for this lapse; some historian should have been consulted who would have insisted on not allowing this massive oversight.

The entirety of this Illustrated Guide to Virginia's Confederate Monuments is formatted in two columns, aside from the table of contents with one column, and the index with three. As a result, photos of thirty foot monuments are often exactly the same size as those more similar to a personal gravestone. There is a lot of potential for this book, in perhaps a second edition, even with black and white photos, provided somebody actually comes up with some semi-decent layouts to better display the pictures in an attractive fashion. I could come up with three possibilities in five minutes, and I hardly work at a publishing house. There's nothing to be done about boring content, however, as long as this illustrated volume includes redundant descriptions; I defy anyone to not tire of the words obelisk, shaft, and base before reaching the halfway point in this book.

Sedore's book delivers what is promised and much more. It is a thoughtfully compiled guide book and historical resource that gives the reader access to the bravery, grief, and pride of the Confederate South through an examination of its post-Civil War memorials. The book is very well-written and well-organized. The geographical layout and consistent formatting of content will surely be appreciated by travelers seeking to find the monuments that the book called them to explore. My expectation of Virginia's Confederate Monuments was that I would learn about the construction processes, materials, shapes, locations, etc., of Civil War monuments throughout the South. As an added bonus, the authors' well-researched site commentaries and his appreciation for words combined to create a special effect: the monument inscriptions touched my heart.
