Thank You for Your Overwhelming Interest

We got things stabilized after the wave of traffic that followed last week’s press release about the Vietnam Wall project and things went well over the weekend. We even ordered some additional hardware to help us handle the amazing response, but before we could get it and set it up, a feature story on the homepage of CNN and a few other high profile mentions swamped us again.

It’s so great to see that other people are as excited about this project as we are. We are working hard to catch up with the interest. If you have trouble while on the site, please check back soon. We’ll be here.

In the meantime you can:

  1. This is a stunning piece of work. I’ve never been to Footnote before, and wow, what an introduction viewing the Wall! You should be swamped with visitors – excellence draws people. Congratulations!

  2. I have long been fascinated by the photographs and documents in the National Archives and have ordered from them in the past. To make this function accessible online is genius! I work on the computer all day . . . and to be able to research and write directly from my laptop is a God-send. The Vietnam project is especially close to my heart as my father’s name is on The Wall. Thank you.
