From very well-known battlefields in Virginia and Tennessee to lesser-known battlefields on the fringes of 19th century America, the Civil War was fought in nearly every corner of the young republic. To reflect the sprawling nature of America’s defining conflict, the members of the Civil War Trust have saved more than 41,000 acres of battlefield land in 20 states, protecting hallowed ground at historic Civil War sites across the country.
The Civil War Trust now has the opportunity to save 1,180 acres across ten battlefields and seven states. These battlefields—where 43,000 Americans made the ultimate sacrifice—are in the Eastern, Western, and the Trans-Mississippi theaters of the war and include places like Brandy Station, Bentonville, and Glendale, where you have already helped us preserve land.
Thanks to an incredible matching gift, with your help, we can save this swath of land for just $268,000. That’s a 10-to-1 value on your gift!
Please help preserve these ten battlefields and add more than one thousand acres to those saved across the US!
