This site, The American Civil War @ 150, aims to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the U.S. Civil War, via historic photographs, drawings, newspaper articles books, event listings, news items, opinions, and anything else that I feel to be relevant.
I appreciate any comments, questions, or concerns about that you may have. The easiest way to contact me is to fill out the “leave a comment” box at the bottom of each post or page, including this page.
Much of the material on American Civil War @ 150 is historic material, created as long as 150 years ago and collected here. As material that was created up to 150 years ago, it necessarily reflects the world-views and prejudices of its authors, and in some cases would today be considered politically incorrect or (occasionally) offensive. While I generally do not include material that is particularly tasteless, I do not censor the material that I choose to include, as I feel that understanding what people thought during and after the Civil War is more important. Note that the views expressed in historic content are solely those of it’s authors, and not of the creator of this site.
For historic content and other content I have not created, I have made an effort to ensure that I only use either material in the public domain or material for which the copyright holder permits reproduction. I have also attempted to identify authors for all works where possible. If you believe that either my assessment of the copyright status of a work or my attribution of authorship is incorrect, please contact me by leaving a comment either on the appropriate page or below.
