Speak Out

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

Current Campaigns

  • 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!

  • TELL CONGRESS: Protect Priority Petersburg Campaign Battlefields

    The Civil War Trust is urging its supporters to contact their congressman and tell them to support H.R. 1621, the Petersburg National Battlefield Boundary Modification Act. This act would expand the boundaries of the Petersburg National Battlefield Park to protect key battlefield sites not presently protected by the National Park Service.

  • Tell Congress to support critical battlefield program

    The federal Civil War Battlefield Preservation Program is the primary tool used by the Civil War Trust to save battlefield land. Tell Congress to support full funding for the Civil War Battlefield Preservation Program for fiscal year (FY) 2016.
