From Our President

Dear Civil War Preservationist,

We at the Civil War Trust are lucky in that we get to regularly wander our Civil War battlefields with some of the best historians around. We know that not all of you have those same opportunities. But with our Civil War Battle Apps on your iPhone (and soon your Android phones) you can now explore many of our battlefields with leading historians. Our brand new Chancellorsville Battle App features videos with renowned historian Bob Krick – and all for free. Download all of our apps today and experience the battlefields in whole new way, no matter where you are.

With the holidays fast upon us I did want to mention a few unique gift ideas for you and all of your history minded relatives, friends, and colleagues. Why not consider giving a Civil War Trust "gift membership" to another? Or how about our "Give an Acre" program where you can save precious battlefield land in the name of another? Our new Civil War Trust credit cards and 2012 calendar are also great ways to help us save more of our battlefields.

- Jim Lighthizer, Civil War Trust President
