Twenty years ago the National Trust for Historic Preservation listed Chancellorsville Battle among America’s eleven Most Endangered Historic Places. Now, it’s time to celebrate the preservation successes for this battlefield and important historic area!

This coming Friday – March 2, 2018 – there will be an informal celebration of preservation successes in and around the Fredericksburg & Spotsylvania National Military Park.

Historians and representatives from National Trust for Historic Preservation, Civil War Trust, and the Central Virginia Battlefields Trust will be on hand to talk about the partnerships and tools—like the Land and Water Conservation Fund—that have protected iconic places, such as the location of Jackson’s Flank Attack.

Attend and discover the history of preservation at Chancellorsville and find out what new preservation efforts are underway in the area and at other battlefields.
