The term deadline arose during the Civil War. It described
a small fence within a prison stockade that was not to be crossed
by the prisoners. If a prisoner did cross the line, he was shot.
The term deadline, as defined by the Editor of Michigan's
Messenger is as follows:
"Any article submissions received by the Editor after the
deadline date will be shot down. The article will die and the remains
will not be sent back to the author."
The Editor is a mean guardian of the deadline, so make sure your
article reaches him in time and does not cross the deadline, if
you wish to see your article arrive back at your home in Michigan's
Messenger, safe and sound.
Articles may be sent by e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please include a short lead in message stating the article is for
"The Messenger" and the title, (i.e., Camp News, officer
report, etc.). You may also send it as an attached file.
