A New Opportunity at Gettysburg
With the preservation of the Country Club property and the Josiah Benner farm well underway, the Civil War Trust is pleased to announce the chance to save even more of the Gettysburg battlefield.
This new opportunity—2 parcels along the Baltimore Pike totaling 4 acres—brings us one step closer to completing the preservation of an iconic piece of American history. Literally tens of thousands of Union troops marched on or across this property on their way to destiny at Culp’s Hill and Spangler’s Spring. After the battle, some of the fallen from those fateful engagements were buried here—right on the very land the Trust is working to save.
Now we have the opportunity to continue the hard work we have done, to save the very ground upon which brave Americans trod during their epic struggle in 1863. This important ground, coupled with a separate preservation effort at the Country Club and the Josiah Benner House property, makes this one of the most exciting opportunities in our history.
