Monument Project Proposal


I am putting together a web site containing photographs of local Civil War monuments--the kind that are found in town squares or cemeteries across the North and the South. I plan to have them indexed by state.

How you can help:

Please send me a photograph of your town's/county's/state's Civil War Monument either electronically (.jpg, .tif, or .gif format preferred, but I can convert others) or by snail mail. If you want the photograph returned, note it on the back and include your return address; I will return it after I scan it. Include the following so I can caption the picture and give you credit:


I want to stress that I would like local monuments to Union and Confederate soldiers in general, or local units, not monuments from ACW battlefields or Richmond's Monument Avenue.
