Editor’s Note: Former Abbeville Institute summer school student Jon Harris and his Last Stand Studios produced this original documentary about American monuments and the ongoing American iconoclasm. It features Abbeville Institute scholars Donald Livingston, Brion McClanahan, Bill Wilson, Philip Leigh, and Kirkpatrick Sale.
From the website:
“Our next project, American Monument, will explore the good, true, and beautiful qualities represented by various monuments to people and groups around the United States. Figures focused on are soldiers, explorers, statesman, as well as individuals such as Robert E. Lee, Christopher Columbus, and Thomas Jefferson. The documentary will explore, expose, and oppose the motives behind current monument destruction and reinforce the need for qualities such as enterprise, bravery, sacrifice, and leadership the monuments represent.”
