Preserving the sacred places where the American Civil War was fought is a priority for both our authors and readers. Many of us are either members of, or have supported at one point or another, one the several key preservation organizations that are tirelessly working to save as much hallowed ground as possible before it is gone forever. These organizations are constantly “fighting the good fight,” and in many cases, these victories are made without the recognition they deserve.
Join us Sunday mornings as we post the latest preservation updates from organizations such as the Civil War Trust, Central Virginia Battlefields, Franklin’s Charge, Richmond Battlefields Association, and many more.
Our first update happened just this past week when the Civil War Trust announced yet another victory at the Chancellorsville and Wilderness Battlefields. They write, “Earlier this year, we called on our members to help preserve a 355-acre parcel of land associated with both the 1863 Battle of Chancellorsville and the 1864 Battle of the Wilderness. Thanks to the loyalty and commitment of members like you, we can now celebrate victory on this crucial land! With these additional acres, the Trust has now preserved over 1,100 acres at Chancellorsville and the Wilderness.” Click the link for further information regarding this saved land.
We hope to “see” you again on Sunday mornings for these updates.
