    Only 2 Months left this year! But Since I adjusted the timing of the contests we will be having a December PotM!

    If you love to take photos at Civil War battlefields or Reenactments, you can now post your best shots in our Monthly Contest!

    Be sure to read the rules, some rules have been changed and we have added new rules

    Rules:

    1) Each Member may submit one (1) photo per monthly contest.
    2) The person submitting the photo must be the photographer.
    3) Photo must have been taken within the last 2 years
    4) Photo may be from a Reenactment, Battlefield, or any other Civil War subject matter.
    5) Once a photo is submitted to a Monthly Contest, it cannot be entered into any future Monthly Contest.
    6) All submissions must be entered before October 15th, 2016.
    7) Only the 20 photos with the most likes will be entered in the voting thread. Likes must be given by October 20th, 2016. If there are not more than 20 entries, all will be entered for voting.
    8) Winner will be chosen by membership vote. Voting will begin October 22, 2016 and end October 30, 2016.
    9) If you won the previous months contest please wait one month before entering again. We want to showcase everyone who enters.
    10) Titles or descriptions will not accompany the photos in the voting thread, however, I will (try to) link to the submissions thread for people wishing to have more info.

    1) Reply to this thread, and include your attached photo by using the "Upload a File" button, then select "full image".

    * I had the honor to place an USA flag and a Maine flag on his grave (along with a hardy USMC salute).

    Thanks! I was hard pressed to choice between color and B&W... the sky in the color image is pretty amazing! I decided (perhaps poorly) that the sky took away from the architecture.

    It's going to be another really tough decision when voting time comes around!!!

    @CheathamHill, should you wish to reveal the location of that beautiful photo, I'm curious! (I'll understand if you don't want to, though.)
