It is hard to believe that the third month of 2018 is almost upon us. If you have not had a chance to check out all of the great preservation successes of 2017 by the Civil War Trust, continue on below.
“In the 30th anniversary year of the modern battlefield preservation movement, the Civil War Trust saved over 2,000 acres of battlefield ground. For the first time, this includes battlefield land from the War of 1812 as well as land in the state of New York. Aside from reaching a total of 48,000 acres saved, the Trust also brought 4,500 schoolchildren onto battlefields via its Field Trip Fund initiative and reached millions of people through a newly-designed website.”
