Our June 2006 purchase of the 208-acre Slaughter Pen Farm at Fredericksburg was, at $12 million, the largest private battlefield purchase in America's history, and remains the biggest transaction the Trust has ever attempted. But with your backing, we accepted the risk, and secured this supremely hallowed ground.
The good news is that we've raised more than 60% of the total that we need to raise, but our next $100,000 payment is due and we need your help. So today, I ask you to please be as generous as you can and once again help the Civil War Trust meet its annual loan obligation for the Slaughter Pen Farm. Donate Today »
