The Civil War Trust once called Robert E. Lee’s headquarters at Gettysburg the most important unprotected land in America. After an impressive fund-raising campaign, the Trust purchased the property, restored it to its wartime appearance and, this past fall, turned the property over to Gettysburg National Military Park.
ECW’s Chris Mackowski paid a visit to the site just prior to the Trust’s grand ribbon-cutting ceremony. His report was ECW’s second-most-read post of 2016.
