US Civil War Project/War Between the States: Interested in developing this new project?

+20 votes
This project is getting started soon and I was wondering if anyone is interested in participating to get it up and going with the opportunity to learn how a project is started and also to shape the direction of the project.  The more the merrier!

We currently have several resource pages set up. They are linked to my profile page if you would like to review these or contribute.


If you are interested send me a private message with your email and I will add you to the growing list of participants so we can all work together to get this important project up and running!  Thanks!

There has been some discussion regarding the name of this project based upon regional differences in regard to the conflict.


I am suggesting the project be called:  US Civl War: The War Between the States.


If you have another suggestion, please post as an answer and then we can "Vote" up or down which one you want.

I know both sides of the Civil War still have strong feelings; myself being one of them. But from an historical perspective, the most appropriate term would be US_Civil_War. In terms of categorization, history and passage of time, this tag will become the most recognizable to future generations.

Project Tag Suggestions:  This is the "short" tag that would be used in G2G discussions or other forums such as google groups, and project pages.  Project members would add this to their "Followed Surnames" so they would then be notified if a question was posted in G2G or a change to a project page was made.


My suggestion is US_Civil_War  


Any additional suggestions, please post as a comment to this "answer".  Thanks!  :)
