Me or Meade: What can a Civil War Society tell us about online social networking? For five months I documented The General Meade Society, a Civil War society based in Philadelphia.
The General Meade Society is a non-profit organization devoted to promoting and preserving the memory of Union General George Gordon Meade.
Using a video camera, I documented a variety of Meade-related events including monthly meetings, the Society's awards ceremony and the reenactment of a Civil War battle.
A multimedia presentation on a customized 8x12 foot wall and a book based on the transcript from the Society's monthly meeting on Feb. 19, 2009.
People join the Meade Society for a variety of reasons, many of them having nothing to do with the Civil War or General Meade.
