December 2011
Dear Civil War Preservationist,

In this final month of a remarkable 2011, I need your help. Please consider making a year-end gift to help support the Civil War Trust's new, incredible opportunity to save 267 acres of hallowed ground at the Fallen Timbers battlefield at Shiloh! With this incredible transaction – years in the making – we are preserving nearly 75% of the entire battlefield in one fell swoop, where not one single acre was protected before! With your help I know that we can add this important, unprotected battlefield land to the saved column.

I know that many of our iPhone-toting members have downloaded one or all of our Civil War Battle Apps. Well now we have our first Battle App ready for you Android smartphone owners. Our new Bull Run Battle App for Android will be the first of many for this fast growing platform.

- Jim Lighthizer, Civil War Trust President
