TheGunsOfIndependenceYorktownGreeneI am pleased to announce a brand new book contest here at TOCWOC – A Civil War Blog.  To celebrate America’s independence, TOCWOC is giving away a brand new flawless copy of the paperback version of The Guns of Independence: The Siege of Yorktown, 1781, written by  Jerome A. Greene and published by prolific and excellent Civil War book publisher Savas Beatie.  The rules are simple:

  • Be the first person to comment on this blog entry (who meets the requirements below) and you will win a 100% free, 100% new copy of the book.  Please note that I said *comment*, not send an email or use the Contact Us form or any other form of communication with me other than *commenting*.
  • Contestants are limited to those people who can have the book shipped to a location in the lower 48 United States.  No exceptions.
  • Shipping will be via media mail.  No exceptions.
  • The first comment to appear *may* not be the winner because I have to approve comments for anyone who hasn’t commented here before.  In order to be fair, I will announce a winner after approving comments first.
  • The winner’s name will appear at the end of this blog entry when a winner has been determined.

UPDATE: The Contest is CLOSED.  “Robert” is the winner!  I’d like to encourage everyone to continue reading this summer.  I have plans for more free book giveaways in the future…

Hey Brett,

My mom has an interest in the Revolutionary War and I think she’d like the book. Hopefully I’ll be first.
