Re: [civilwarwest] An unpaid for political announcement!!!!!!!
- Hi Steve,
What an interesting organization. I didn't know it existed. I was
wondering, do you personally know if they are what this announcement says
they are? If so, and you say there are indeed legitimate, I am thinking
very seriously about contacting them and volunteering my services through my
website. I can do this because they are not commercial and it appears to be
a cause in which I believe. While I couldn't help much with the money end
of it, I do have a fairly powerful voice in the Civil War community with the
site. This time of the year it gets 60,000+ a day and climbs from there as
the year progresses. Even if you take away the hits for images, multiple
hits by the same individual, etc. you are still talking about 20,000+
individual visits a day and if only 5% of those that came to the site
clicked on something to do with that organization, that is still quite a lot
of folks that would know about it who otherwise wouldn't. Do you know if
they have a website? If so I could link it, if not I could make a little
page describing what they do. Just a thought.
Anyway, while I have everyone's attention I would like to mention something
else. I see the discussion has turned to Stone's River (a.k.a. The Battle
of Murfreesboro) for which I am grateful. I'm learning a lot. This is just
for the newcomers to the group and those that might have gotten to the
discussion group through some other venue than my website. I have got quite
a bit on Stone's River on my website that some might not know about.
However, I would advise those that do not want to do a lot of reading, don't
even bother with a visit to the site. There is a lot there and is it is
fairly detailed. Here's the link for those that are interested.
Ya'll take care now ya hear!
I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
Dick (a.k.a. Shotgun)
