The hashtag #arras95 marks out each updated item, both by the Project’s team (on Twitter) and by interested Twitter users. Other media will be involved, including maps and archival images. Here are directions for participation.
Why do this?
@Arras95 will surface a key, but lesser taught, turning point of the War, providing an innovative opportunity for others to learn about and engage in discussion about this historical event. @Arras95 will increase the visibility of open content around this one focal point, providing teachers, students and the general public with a wealth of resources for free use and adaption.
It’s a good example of what I call “temporally structured archival blogging.”
