Victory at Ball's Bluff! We Did It!
Back in June, we announced our campaign to preserve the Jackson House at Ball's Bluff in Virginia. Adjacent to the Ball's Bluff Battlefield Regional Park, these three acres were witness to the initial fighting on between Mississippi and Massachusetts men on October 21, 1861, that opened the Union disaster at Ball's Bluff. This land and the wartime Jackson House represent the last significant part of the battlefield yet unpreserved.
Today, on the 152nd anniversary of the battle, the Civil War Trust is proud to announce that we have successfully saved the site of the Jackson House at Ball's Bluff. Thanks to the generosity of our members we have raised the $50,000 needed to preserve these three acres where the Battle of Ball's Bluff began. Thanks to you, we have once again saved a key piece of American history for future generations.
