Memory and Public Commemoration in U.S. cities

Hi All,
   I am writing a book that examines the role of public commemoration and civic/cultural memory in U.S. urban development.
Are you familiar with any recent publications that engage with memory in the American city or public commemoration in urban spaces?
I am looking for suggestions of recent journal articles and books from diverse fields.
Thank you so much for your time and consideration,


In Memoriam: William Pencak

At the request of my friend and colleague George Boudreau of Penn State Harrisburg, I post this tribute to the late William Pencak.  I only got to meet Bill Pencak once, but I long followed his fine work on Ameican colonial and revolutionary history and many other topics.  He was truly a scholar and a gentleman.

George Boudreau's tribute to William Pencak appears below my signature line.
