Speak Out

We can't save these threatened battlefields alone—we need help from concerned citizens like you.

Current Campaigns

  • Support a Brandy Station and Cedar Mountain State Park

    Tell Culpeper’s representatives in the Virginia General Assembly that you support a new state park at the Brandy Station and Cedar Mountain battlefields.

  • Protect Priority Shiloh and Corinth Campaign Battlefields

    The Civil War Trust is urging its supporters to contact their congressman and tell them to support H.R. 87, the Shiloh National Military Park Boundary Adjustment and Parker's Crossroads Battlefield Designation Act. This measure calls for the inclusion of 2,284 crucial battlefield acres into Shiloh National Military Park and establishes Parker’s Crossroads Battlefield as an affiliated area of the National Park System.

  • Protect America’s War Memorials

    Our nation’s war memorials need to be preserved and protected for future generations. Please sign our petition urging Congressional leaders to safeguard these silent sentinels, which honor the service and sacrifice of America’s soldiers, past and present.

  • Support Congressional Gold Medal for Historian Ed Bearss

    Thanks to a bill in Congress sponsored by Rep. Gerald Connolly (D-VA), H.R. 2059, Ed Bearss may soon receive a new accolade to add to his lengthy resume: Congressional Gold Medal recipient. Show your support!
