Thank you to everyone who has shared their photos—we have received remarkable photo submissions year after year. Your collective passion for Civil War history and battlefield preservation has created some truly memorable images!
Let's keep the momentum going! In a new format, we will now be accepting photos of different themes and categories periodically thoughout the year via our Facebook community photo contest »
Current Contest Category:
Your Family on a Battlefield
Share photos of your family’s battlefield experience!
This summer, people across America are stepping onto battlefields. Families are going on trips to learn about our nation's history and explore our greatest conflict — the Civil War. We want you to share your special moments with us!
Share a photo of you or your family members on a battlefield: a national, state or local park, or even preserved land owned by the Civil War Trust. Take a snapshot of you and your spouse on a hike, children with a park ranger, or grandparents taking in a monument— anything that you can capture!
Feel free to include a caption to tell us which battlefield you are visiting, and who is in the photo.
You can return to the Facebook community photo contest to see submissions and to vote for your favorite images. At the end of the contest, we will announce the "People's choice" winner on social media. Our team will select one (or many!) photos to appear in Hallowed Ground—our award-winning magazine.
- All entries to "Your Family on a Battlefield" must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. ET on Aug 24, 2016. Select submissions might be displayed in a gallery or featured on our website, social media channels, or email.
