I was directed to an interesting initiative by Susan Star Paddock over at the No Casino Gettysburg Network (we’re big fans of this organization, by the way). Organized by the Obama Administration as a “national dialogue about conservation in America to learn about some of the smart, creative ways communities are conserving outdoor spaces,” America’s Great Outdoors: Your Ideas for Protecting the Places You Love, is now the proud home of our idea, The Civil War Augmented Reality Project. We believe that our project is an example of the way that historic sites can increase revenues and become truly informative and interactive. If you think so, too, we’d love it if you could “promote” our idea on the site.
Besides our America’s Great Outdoors campaign, also today we learned of a fabulous new review of our idea by Rene Tyree over at Wig-Wags, a military history and American Civil War blog.
