With a little cajoling from my boss, Lee LaTour, we were able to get some play for the Civil War LAN on the University of Oregon’s home page. Doing some double-dipping, I wrote a social media release for the Civil War LAN and posted it to Pitch Engine (see my release here). Lee was able to get in touch with the right people in the UO’s Public and Media Relations department and they decided to use my release! They made some small edits and added a little more content for clarity, but the bulk of my original release is still there. It was only on the UO home page for a few hours (before being bumped down by other content), but that’s still pretty cool. You can read the revised PMR release here.
