Happy Holidays from the Civil War Trust

Happy Holidays from the Civil War Trust!
From everyone at the Civil War Trust, I want to wish you the happiest of holiday seasons. We simply could not do what we do without the support of our wonderful friends, such as yourself.

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.
Please 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
Jim Lighthizer, President
