Civil War Myths and Mysteries Quiz – Courtesy of @CivilWarTrust

I couldn’t resist a quick post in recognition of the season. So for Halloween, lets take a look at some myths and mysteries of the Civil War. Can you separate fact from fiction?  The Civil War Trust has a great little quiz. (Actually, their whole site is fantastic).  But for tonight, start with the quiz. 🙂 Try it out! Just click on the image below, answer a few questions, and let us know how you scored!

And if you really must know…I got a 70%. Obviously, I need to do a whole lot more reading and research!

And of course, our Kickstarter for the documentary film, “The Invalid Corps and the Battle of Fort Stevens” is still running this month:

The Invalid Corps and the Battle of Fort Stevens is a Kickstarter Staff Pick!

Just a quick update. We’re thrilled to announce that we were just selected as a Kickstarter Staff Pick! I had to take a quick screencap of the email because I didn’t believe it for myself. Thanks for all the support folks! Let’s keep going!  Please continue to spread the word:

And yes, I had to post a Kickstarter Staff Pick Logo!

Kickstarter Launches

Yes! This morning we launched the crowdfunding for the Invalid Corps documentary film. We’ve spent months already doing research, trying to make sure we are well grounded in the subject and putting together the outline of what is an amazing story of sacrifice and devotion to duty.

Our goal is to raise the funds for pre-production, licensing, and rights. We’ve found some great images that unfortunately have costs associated with them. Now, we basically have 30 days to raise the full $7,776. And with Kickstarter it is all or nothing.

We here at the Invalid Corps Team are excited and hope you’ll join us.
