We're in the home stretch of 2016 and there's so much to be proud of. This year we have saved over 3,500 acres of hallowed battlefield land at 30 battlefields across 10 states. That is remarkable.
In the final hours of 2016, I am asking you to make a contribution to the cause before the end of the year. When you give a gift, you are not giving to the Civil War Trust; you are giving to our country. With your support and the support of others like you, these sacred spaces that tell the story of our nation's defining conflicts will be protected long after we are gone.
Your online gift will help our continuing work at iconic Civil War battlefields like Slaughter Pen Farm in Fredericksburg and Barlow's Knoll in Gettysburg, both sites that could have been lost to development had we not gotten involved. Without your ongoing support, we could not have been as effective this year or any year, and we could not sustain the rate of battlefield preservation we have reached.
But our work is far from complete. Which is why I am asking for a final push for preservation as the year comes to a close. With your help, we will enter 2017 with the strength to continue protecting critically important acres of America's history for future generations.
