What Are People Saying About Civil War Memory?
“For the Civil War buffs among us, it’s really worth spending some time over at Kevin Levin’s blog, Civil War Memory. [I]t’s a great blog dealing in exactly what its title claims.” – Ta-Nehisi Coates, the Atlantic
“Levin’s blog is an insightful look at how Americans remember and commemorate the Civil War. It consists of cogently written short essays, ranging from light-hearted jibes at tacky souvenirs (like a John Wilkes Booth bobblehead assassinating an Abraham Lincoln bobblehead) to a systematic demolition of the neo-Confederate myth that thousands of blacks fought for the Confederacy. His work is so good that in 2011 the Library of Congress made the blog part of its permanent digital collection.” – Mark Grimsley, Professor at Ohio State University

Civil War Memory offers a number of ways to feature your products and projects. The most popular is the standard 125×125 ad space that you will find in the sidebar on the blog page. Other options include a 300×250 ad in the sidebar. Additional dimensions are also possible. These slots will appear on the full blog page as well as individual post pages. Ad space can also be generated following each single post before the comments.
Just Added: 600×150 slot that appears above the title of all single posts pages.
Important: I will only welcome sponsors whose products and projects I can fully support.
For a limited time I am offering potential advertisers one free month for the available 125×125 slots. Simply send me the ad and after one month we can discuss whether you want to continue as a paying customer.
- Sponsors have the option to change up their ad as often as they like for the duration.
- Sponsors should expect to make a minimum 3-month commitment.
Advertisers can also expect that their products and projects will be shared at Civil War Memory’s Facebook page (3,700 likes) and through my twitter feed (3,400 followers).
Over the past few years the number of digital history projects has dramatically increased and are changing how we research, conceptualize, and visualize the past. Many of these projects, however, go unnoticed by the general public.
Authoring a sponsored post offers a unique opportunity to highlight your project and connect with new visitors. Guest posts remain on the blog page for up to one week and as a bonus will then be archived on a special page accessible in the navigation menu.
The sponsored post option is also ideal for museums and other institutions for announcing upcoming teacher institutes, exhibits, and other public events.
