Instructions for submitting a document
I am interested in receiving suggestions for documents
to be included at this site. As publisher I do reserve the right
of final editorial judgement, but I promise to consider any and
all reasonable requests. Some criteria to keep in mind:
Feel free to make suggestions: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Make a specific suggestion. Don't say, "You
have nothing from [insert name here], and I think you
ought to." Instead, say, "I think you should
consider the speech of [blah, blah]" and give time,
place, etc., along with a source.
- Folks who provide the typed text by email will earn extra consideration.
- Since the site is devoted to the secession
crisis, I am mostly interested in documents from the
period 1860-61. Lincoln's Second Inaugural is an
exception to that, and I suspect that there might be
others from time to time, but do keep this in mind.
- I will almost certainly refuse to put up any
post-war commentary. What I am trying to accomplish here
is to put in the public eye the actual words and thoughts
of the actors in the secession drama. What did they
say it was all about?
