In recent history, the question of what to do with monuments--particularly those of Confederate origins--has become a source of contentious debate. The City of Boston only possessed one such monument on Georges Island, however, it was removed in 2017. Does this mean that Boston no longer possesses any problematic statues? In the words of Boston Globe journalist Ty Burr, “Are Boston’s statues honoring all the right men?” And, who gets to decide?


Join Eleanor Citron, MHS’s summer intern, for a virtual tour of Metro Boston’s monuments--from those championed by the city, to those beheaded or uprooted, and things in between.
