Revision as of 17:32, 6 April 2007

This is continuation of the article American Civil War, and the subject will be expanded into separate articles by year. Karajou 17:52, 28 March 2007 (EDT)

Have not edited much

I wanted to get this one doen by Friday, but one of my brakes went bed, and had to spend over $250.00 just to replace them. The pains of getting sidetracked!

The remainder of this page concerns more fill related to Bull Run; a major battle in Missouri in August, 1861; the details related to the early days of the war; comparisons between the Union and Confederate navies; and so on. Not done yet. Karajou 23:13, 1 April 2007 (EDT)

A word on citing sources

You will notice in the various paragraphs (TL 2, pg 11). I am using the Harbrace Manual's style of citation and source use, which identifies exactly where the source in question came from. It also means full credit is still given to the source used, so copyrights are not violated. I would encourage everyone not only to do it this way, but be as meticulous as possible when writing articles here. Karajou 11:04, 2 April 2007 (EDT)

Karajou, Where does it say we can post from a book to online without violating the copyright? I admire the Civil War articles, I'm just concerned about doing the same thing in my future articles. Crocoite Talk 18:13, 6 April 2007 (EDT)
I got my training in this matter from MTSU, and other universities are similar. We use the Harbrace Manual as a guide, and it states that the writer is authorized to use quotations, words or ideas in our own published works, provided that we properly cite the source where it came from (had to make that clear). Go to this link [1] for more info.
When you do your's, whether it's a verbatim quote or using a paragraph as a guide, Harbrace states to put the author and page number like this: (Scott, pg 43) at the end of the quotation, and then follow it up by putting the full source in the reference section below: Scott, John F. Great Grapes, Harper & Row, New York (1953). This is written in author, title, publisher, city published, and last date published format. Others may do it slightly different, i.e. the little number at the end of the paragraph, which is a flag to look below for the source; it's the same intended thing. Karajou 19:32, 6 April 2007 (EDT)

Finished the article

Minor tweaking is all that's needed now. Karajou 15:17, 6 April 2007 (EDT)

Aftermath

I'll probably add an aftermath subsection at the bottom, detailing the results of the year, and what could be expected in the following year. Karajou 15:33, 6 April 2007 (EDT)
