Building on Previous Successes
Union offensives in 1862 and 1864 brought the carnage of battle to the doorstep of the Confederate capital of Richmond, turning the fields and forests of central Virginia into the killing grounds of some of the war's bloodiest and hardest-fought battles of the Civil War in the east.
The Civil War Trust now has the opportunity to preserve 69 acres at three key Richmond battlefields, Glendale, Malvern Hill, and First Deep Bottom. These tracts—each of which saw significant action during the fighting for the Confederate capital—will be added to the more than 2,300 acres of hallowed ground we have saved in the Richmond area, building on previous successes as we preserve our history for future generations.
