"Janney has performed a valuable service in restoring the importance of the Ladies' Memorial Associations as instrumental to the Lost Cause. The LMAs were at this game much earlier than the better-known United Daughters of the Confederacy. More significant, Janney has shown how the memorial associations figured prominently in postwar political struggles." - William Blair, Pennsylvania State University"
