In this photo taken July 1, 2011 a motorist passes by a Civil War Heritage Trail sign, which marks the site of Crawfish Spring in Chickamauga, Ga. Contemporary politics have long shaped how Civil War history is interpreted. Discussing racially charged history was unlikely in the Deep South during the war's centennial in 1961, the same year whites rioted at the University of Georgia when two black students arrived on campus.
