Save the Slaughter Pen


In 2006, the Civil War Trust embarked up its most ambitious and costly battlefield preservation effort in its history – the preservation of the Slaughter Pen Farm at Fredericksburg. Thanks to the continued support of our members, year after year, we have been able to honor our commitment to protecting this crucial piece of ground.

This year, an anonymous donor has offered to donate $277,000 of the $300,000 the Trust needs to meet its annual commitment for 2014. This means that we need just $23,000 to protect the Slaughter Pen Farm—bringing us one step closer to saving this land forever.  Help Save Slaughter Pen Farm!
