Call for Articles

Ladies and Gentlemen of the First Virginia Regiment,

It has always been a long-term goal to make this website a true Research Portal. I have created a basic shell with a lot of very good information and links. However, I need your help to make this the collection of information that it can be.

If you have a particular set on knowledge, please consider writing an article for the website. Send the finished article to the Quartermistress for editing (as necessary), formatting, and posting.

There are only a couple of rules that you should abide by.

  1. Make sure your name and date is on the article. That way you receive credit for your hard work.
  2. Research should be backed up with sources. Primary sources are preferred but at least give the reader the opportunity to track your research to the sources that you used to come to your conclusions.
  3. Cite your research. If you have any questions about how to write a citation, ask. It doesn’t have to be hard!

My second request is that if you have any links or books not already listed on this site that have been of particular help to you, please pass along via the Contact Us! form. Include with the link a short paragraph describing the site and indicating what is good/bad about it.

The resulting articles will be posted and organized under this section heading.
