Resumo

Este artigo examina a materialidade das práticas de memória no passado ao focar nos monumentos erguidos na cidade norte-americana que inspirou o feriado mais celebrado nos EUA, o Dia de Ação de Graças (Thanksgiving). Através de uma análise do contexto sócio-cultural no início do século 20, período de fabricação da maioria dos monumentos da cidade de Plymouth, evidenciam-se as circunstâncias específicas das escolhas sobre quais aspectos da história deveriam ser expostas, ou não, ao público. Ainda que no local predomine uma narrativa que sublinhe o legado dos imigrantes anglo-saxônicos, a contestação por parte de ativistas tem resultado na adição de narrativas históricas alternativas à paisagem monumental da cidade.
