Monumental Architecture signifies the buildings and monuments themselves in situ together with deeper associations which correspond with specific event, and it perpetually and characteristically changes over time and space. This research has started the exploration of the consequences of the two Civil Wars- Battles in Kinmen and the Battle at Gettysburg. They both have shaped two different monumentalities over time and space. War Monumentality holds and shapes in its spirit of place, intangible meanings and associations exposed by actual causes, consequences, and the extent of events to form cultural heritages.
Through this paper’s argument it is possible to give rise to a singular hypothesis to memorials/monuments and to add further insight into the public ambitions behind war monumentality. In conclusion, this study asserts that although the war monuments are a consequence of Civil Wars per se, these are nevertheless represent dialectical spirit of places by what they commemorate.
