The Civil War Preservation Trust
Preserving our past is the surest way to ensure our future. We are committed to saving our heritage because it teaches us the values that forged — and will sustain — America's greatness. We believe there is no better way to fully understand this nation than for each generation, in its own time, to stand in the very places where the soldiers once stood and to reflect upon the sacrifices that they bore.
