As you likely know, our current project is the flag of the 14th Tennessee Infantry, which was captured at Gettysburg. You can read about the flag, the soldiers, and our efforts at the ancillary Tennessee Division website: We need your help in passing along this information to others, and here are a few ideas as to how you can help.
First, we need all camp webmasters to link to the flags website. Those links rank us higher in web searches and gain us greater exposure to the general public. Second, mention this site to your friends both inside and outside the historical community. If you're on a history site, make a post about what the SCV is doing here. Or if you're on a local media site, discussing a heritage violation, reference folks to the site, showing them the type of thing we do. Send out an to your friends list, and refer them to the site. And while you're at it, ask them to consider donating ten or twenty dollars.
Also, we're closing in on Facebook Likes, and that page is translating into further exposure. If you haven't yet, join us on Facebook. And today right now go to to help us in search rankings. This project has been a bit of an experiment, and even though our hope was to raise funds in smaller increments, we're actually being carried by larger donations. We also have noticed that a mention of our site on a history forum also drives folks to visit the website, and in bigger numbers than selectively placed ads. In plain English, if you ask a friend to take a look, they likely will. And right now the bulk of our contributions is coming from outside Tennessee and the SCV, due purely to your efforts to get the word out.
It's our goal to continue increasing our visibility with the public, because with that comes greater interest in the flags, as well as increased donations. In the upcoming months it's our intention to add educational articles on Confederate flags, as well as videos concerning the different patterns, their usage, and so forth. At some point we would like a web search on Confederate flag to list our site in the top five, and with that visibility we will have the opportunity to educate people as to the honor of these banners. And while they're there, we hope they will be inclined to donate a few dollars.
Greater exposure drives interest and donations, so please take the steps mentioned in this article, and please do anything else you can think of that will get us noticed. We are only scratching the surface, and have the potential in the future to make ourselves the go to folks for everything regarding Confederate flags and relics in Tennessee. And, as always, keep buying your SCV license plates; the funds they provide to these efforts is extraordinary.
