One of my readers reminded me the other day that I am soon going to need a new tagline for Civil War Memory. He suggested that I make it a contest, which I think is a great idea. As you know the latter part of, “Reflections of a Civil War Historian and High School History Teacher,” will cease to apply (at least temporarily) come this summer. So, what should it be? The contest will be open through next Friday. My only request is that contestants must be members of the Civil War Memory Facebook Page. The winner will receive a copy of Aaron Sheehan Dean’s, Why Confederates Fought: Family and Nation in Civil War Virginia (University of North Carolina Press, 2009). Feel free to be as creative as you like.
Thanks for your help.
