Progress Update

Over the past few days I have been working on selecting photographs from West Virginia History On View. I believe I have most of them but I am still looking for a few for the Causes, Events, and Aftermath pages. I’m also working on constructing a header consisting of a map of the intact Virginia before the war, the attack on Fort Sumter or the signing of the Ordinance of Secession in Richmond, and a map of the separated West Virginia and Virginia after the war. This would give a quick visual primer on the story of West Virginia secession and the colors would provide a nice contrast with the largely black and white or sepia images. I would prefer to have an image of the signing of the Ordinance, but unfortunately I cannot find one yet.

I have also been working on fixing the issues with menus, but as yet without success. I tried following this tutorial but the unclickable parent link never showed up under my pages so I could not figure out how to add new pages underneath.
