This year, we have saved more battlefield land than ever before… over 3,000 acres in a single year. With our capital campaign, Campaign 150: Our Time, Our Legacy,
now in full swing, our goal of preserving an additional 20,000 is well
within reach and we are continuing to pave the way in creating exciting
Civil War educational opportunities for students and adults across the
country. These initiatives will allow future generations an opportunity
not only to traverse the battlefields we have saved together, but also
to learn about what happened at these historic sites — in some cases
without leaving the classroom! While we have already reached a number of
milestones in the campaign, there are still hills to climb. The next three years will be challenging, exciting, and absolutely critical to the success of battlefield preservation. We cannot thank you enough for your unwavering support.
enjoy a short presentation of your accomplishments from 2012. Thank you
again for your enthusiastic support of battlefield preservation.
Warmest wishes for this holiday season,
Jim Lighthizer, President
