And the winner is…
Our Tough Guy is over and the contest winner was John Wayne. The Duke still has many fans.
And the winner of a Free copy of the documentary film, The Battle of Shiloh, is Alexandre Bernardes Quintao!! Congratulations to Alexandre.
When I notified Alexandre that he won, he was definitely excited. He has a keen interest in the American Civil War and likes history. That’s why he came to Open Eyes Media. As it turns out, Alexandre lives in the city of Belo Horizonte … and guess where this city is located?? BRAZIL! Yes, Open Eyes Media has people reading the blog in Brazil.
I checked blog stats and the blog currently has readers in 55 countries with the top five being: the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, the Czech Republic and Brazil. Visitors have read the blog in all continents except for Antarctica. The list of countries is amazing. I think it says something about the web – people have access to many educational and entertaining sites! And it says something about Open Eyes Media – the photos and content have broad appeal.
I am shipping The Battle of Shiloh to Alexandre tomorrow. Hopefully, I can get his reaction to the film after he has viewed it. Maybe he will share a few thoughts. It would be very interesting to get the perspective of someone from a foreign country who has an interest in Civil War history. More to come…
And for those who did not win but would like to purchase a copy of the film… CLICK HERE. The cost is only $23 ($20 + $3 shipping). That’s a bargain for a 2-DVD documentary of th 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Shiloh.
