Save 1863 Battlefields - Header

November 1863

The year 1863 was the bloodiest year of the Civil War. Major battles at Gettysburg and Chickamauga had produced the war's greatest casualties. But November 1863 proved that the fighting was not done yet.  Hard-fought battles at places like Rappahannock Station and outside the beleaguered city of Chattanooga drove Confederate troops from key positions and set the stage for the bloody campaigns of the year that followed.

The Civil War Trust now has the opportunity to save 608 acres of endangered battlefield land at two significant November 1863 sites. Vital pieces of hallowed ground at Chattanooga and Rappahannock Station are threatened by development. But with your help, the Civil War Trust can forever preserve land that tells the story of one of the Civil War’s most decisive months.
