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.
Thanks to the generosity of our members, we have raised nearly 83% of the $271,675 needed to save 69 acres at Glendale, Malvern Hill, and First Deep Bottom. This leaves us with just $46,446 left to raise to preserve these important pieces of American history forever. Now, thanks to the help of an anonymous donor, we are even closer to saving these three battlefields. If the Civil War Trust can raise $21,446—less than 8% of the our original goal—this anonymous donor will put in the final $25,000 so we can finally declare these parcels saved!
Help us save Glendale, Malvern Hill, and First Deep Bottom!
