Up front, we at the American Civil War Living Heritage Award program must state emphatically that the award program here is a true AWARDS program and not a thinly guised form of advertising. Our intention is NOT to increase traffic by displaying our "Award" on other sites -- but to award other Civil War sites for the hard work that goes into the research, construction, development, and "heart" that is put into a historical web site.

We take great pride in offering our Awards program (whether it be the American Civil War Excellence Award or the American Civil War Living Heritage Award) to deserving websites that show the hard work that is paramount in placing on the world wide web a truely Excellent site for the public's viewing.

Here are some basic rules that you will need to keep in mind regarding what YOUR Web Site offers to the Cyberspace public. After consideration of the following rules, follow the instructions and contact this researcher at the e-mail address listed below. Your request will be reviewed along with the information submitted and your Web Site. After viewing your site, we will contact you of our decision with regards to the American Civil War Excellence Award.

RULE #1:

All American Civil War LIVING HISTORY (Reenactment) sites will be considered... but preferrencial consideration will be given to INFANTRY Sites. Face it, this researcher's sites are devoted to INFANTRY Regiments. Additionally, ALL sites, both North and South will be given equal consideration (this site does NOT play favorites with this award...face it, these men were ALL American Sons).

RULE #2:

Your pages must contain information that will supply a service to the Web Community. By a service, it is meant, that the page should contain historical information, i.e., a ROSTER of the MEN with regards to the Regiment that you are representing. Other information for consideration is the inclusion of engagements, photos, unit history, command structure, letters, diaries and related information. The overall theme of the web site should be pleasing to the eye and contain your information in an easily readable and understandable format.

RULE #3:

Web sites that do not contain the above information may not be considered. There are many sites that are about the American Civil War in nature, but do not conform to the above mentioned rules. All submitted sites must be easily viewable by the GENERAL PUBLIC. Pages which portray racial, hatred or ethnic overtones will NOT be considered.

RULE #4:

Please provide us with the following
information to better assist us in reviewing
your web site ... (We will make every effort to review your site within a week of receipt of this message. If you do not hear from us by then -- please be patient -- we will review your site. Due to the large demand for our awards program, we review all sites requested -- however, we only respond to sites that are award receiptants. Do not be slighted should we not offer you our award presentation on your first try -- for we only award about 50% of all requested applications.

We offer our awards from a personal point of view and some sites we personally feel are not up to par.Try again later after more work is done to your site. All Civil War web sites go through extensive modifications and additions. Do not despair, you will know when your site is one of the best on the web and that is not by receiving a token of appreciation from another webmaster -- but when you receive the accolades of your visitors who are searching for information about their ancestor.
They are the true award presenters for they are the ones who will praise you work. )
