If you know me, you know I have hosted a few Civil War related sites over the years. All with good intentions, some lasting quite a long time, some not so long. A couple years ago I discovered HubPages and decided to move all my writing to that site to consolidate and also because I can make a little jack on the side!
But here I am starting a new Civil War site. The difference is there really isn’t a “main”focus other than the Civil War. In the past it has been to provide information about the Civil War in Missouri, about sharing info and connecting with others with an interest in the War in the West, to provide a place to post my photos and stories of my travels and to provide some education on that particular theater of the Civil War.
This time, it’s going to be a little different. My goal moving forward is to accomplish a few things:
- Relate newsworthy items related to the Civil War
- Provide commentary about Civil War related items
- Have an outlet to discuss my Civil War related travels and share pictures
- Review Civil War books
- Discuss and promote Civil War Genealogy
- Provide a place that has extensive, up-to-date and useful links to Civil War articles, organizations, resources, etc.
To do it exactly right would require me to quite my job and focus on this full-time. THat is obviously NOT going to happen. So the process will be slow going and definitely a “work in progress.”
Hope you’ll stick around, participate and give me feedback on what is good and bad about the site in the future.
Here we go….
