Save 12 Acres at Gettysburg!

Civil War Trust

Help Save Gettysburg!
On the evening of July 2, 1863, a combined assault by Louisiana and North Carolina troops upon Ohio positions at the base of Cemetery Hill devolved into ferocious hand-to-hand combat. Whoever controlled the crest of this hill controlled the Gettysburg battlefield.
For the second time during the battle's 150th anniversary year, the Civil War Trust has the chance to preserve land at Gettysburg. These 12 acres include the site of the struggle between the Louisiana Tigers and 25th and 75th Ohio on Cemetery Hill. Help save this key piece of American heritage!
