Welcome to the Civil War Digital Digest Patreon page.  If you’re visiting us here, you probably have seen some of our videos. In case you haven’t, we make high quality videos about the American Civil War experience, currently displayed on our YouTube channel as well as our website. These videos cover a range of topics from “how to” to in depth looks at original items to biographies of the lesser-known heroes of the conflict.  We aim to entertain and educate armchair generals, teachers and living historians alike. Episodes are posted every other Wednesday.

As with any quality endeavor there are regular expenses. In the case of video production, funds will immediately support purchase of more storage space for content as well as helping us travel further and commit more time to research and shoot a wider range of episode topics. Rest assured the work of CWDD will continue - can you help us out? We like the Patreon model as it allows you to support something that is already happening.

We are asking for your support as a monthly patron. We chose not to do the “per episode” option here because sometimes a subject is large enough that we will upload two videos at once.
Please look at the giving levels with catchy names here. If the content we are providing is worth your financial support, check out the extras you will receive when you do. Our Patreon feed will also get to view extra videos that have been shot specifically for Patrons. Some of those will have extra history content – some will be bloopers from our shoots.

Thank you for supporting the CWDD and considering becoming a patron! We are amazed at the kind words we’ve received from so many people.

Goals
$384 of $1,000 per month
This goal is a bigger reach - both in terms of dollars raised and impact we will make. Preservation remains a key focus. When we reach this goal, we will continue to give 15% of the Patron's support to preservation efforts they vote on.

The production related objective for this goal is to increase the frequency we release episodes. When this goal is met, we will increase to three episodes per month aired! The money in the goal will help us begin to contract with staff to assist in the shooting and editing process to make this possible. We will go from 26 to 38 episodes per year!
