From Our President
Dear Civil War Preservationist,
For the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Shiloh, I had the honor to accompany Board members John Nau, Mike Grainger, and Trace Adkins to the Shiloh Battlefield. During the press conference we were able to sign the deed that will transfer 167 acres of battlefield land held by the Civil War Trust to the Shiloh National Military Park. I can think of no better way to honor the great sacrifices of the soldiers who fought and died at Shiloh than by saving the very ground where they met in combat.
Before returning to our offices in Washington DC., I also had the chance to stop by the 491 acre tract that we are now working to save at Shiloh. What a magnificent and historic piece of ground. This is a must have piece of land, my friends. And when we save this ground, with your help, the Civil War Trust will have saved more than 1,000 acres of battlefield land at Shiloh. How about that!
- Jim Lighthizer, Civil War Trust President
