American Battlefield Trust announced the opportunity to preserve two important tracts totaling 301 acres at Lookout Mountain and Franklin in Tennessee.
According the news release:
We have the unbelievable opportunity to save critical parcels of historic land on two Tennessee battlefields, for a combined total of 303 acres! The first tract includes 301 acres that played an important role in the “Battle Above the Clouds” at Lookout Mountain. The second tract is a small but crucial parcel at the Franklin Battlefield, which adds a key piece of ground to the land you’ve already worked so hard to reclaim and restore.
Your gift today of any size will be matched $53-to-$1, meaning that instead of us raising nearly $13,100 per acre, we only need to raise $248 per acre. Thanks to several key partnerships, matching grants, and your generosity, we can save more than 303 acres — worth nearly $4 million in transaction value — for a combined total of just $75,000!
