The Tennessee Valley Civil War Round Table is proud to announce its second annual photo contest! 150 years ago, Huntsville and the Tennessee Valley experienced the depredations and horrors of Civil War. For four years, armies both Blue and Gray, occupied and marched through the towns and farms of North Alabama. They clashed in scores of engagements, both large and small, from Bridgeport to Muscle Shoals. Men from North Alabama joined regiments and marched away to fight in far-flung battles from Mississippi to Pennsylvania. To both inform and educate a new generation of Americans on the significance of the American Civil War 1861-1865, and political development of the United States, we are proud to host this contest.
Individuals may enter five (5) of their digital photos. Potential subjects include: Civil War Battlefields (i.e., your great photos of scenic Civil War Battlefields), People on Civil War Battlefields (i.e., people focusing on visiting and enjoying Civil War Battlefields), and Tennessee Valley Related Civil War Historic Sites including period homes, memorials, or scenes connected to events recorded in the Civil War.
