From Our President

Jim Lighthizer Photo

May 2011
Dear Civil War Preservationist,

I am hoping that many of you had the opportunity to join us at our recently completed 2011 Annual Conference in Manassas, Virginia. What a great conference it was -- maybe our best ever. The many battlefield tours with leading historians and great lectures were only eclipsed in my mind by the opportunity to be with many of you, our great supporters.

And, for those of you who couldn't make this year's conference, we have a number of great videos and photos from the event that you can check out via the links below.

I do hope that many more of you will join us in Richmond, Virginia for next year's conference.

- Jim Lighthizer, Civil War Trust President
