Thank you for the award, which I accept on behalf of the thousands of visitors and contributors who have shared their questions and expertise on these sites. I have been very fortunate to have help from hundreds of people, including outstanding authors, educators, amateur historians, genealogists and reenactors. My hope is that we continue to grow and expand to include additional Civil War discussion, websites and articles. I also plan to introduce sites for discussion of other wars and historical periods from the Colonial times to WWI.
Thank you again for the award and for the good works SHAPE does. I hope folks on the message boards will visit and learn more about you on your website at http://www.southernheritageadvancementpreservationeducation.org/ .
