Here are some
basic rules that you will need to keep in mind regarding what YOUR

All Civil War REGIMENTAL sites will be considered... but
preferrencial consideration will be given to INFANTRY Regimental
Sites. Face it, this researcher's sites are devoted to INFANTRY

Web Community. By a service, it is meant, that the page should
contain historical information, i.e., a ROSTER of the MEN with

contain your information in an easily readable and understandable

your site by including the optional control panel. This will save
time that can be utilized in viewing pages that can load quicker.

done to your site. All Civil War web sites go through extensive
modifications and additions. Do not despair, you will know when your
