Eight Battlefields Opportunity
Beat the developers, and stop the desecration of America's hallowed ground. Help save 304 acres at eight critical battlefields.
From Our President
Dear Civil War Preservationist,
Have you ever wanted to save over $3 million worth of hallowed ground — at eight different battlefields — for pennies on the dollar? Well, here's your chance!.
At any moment, perhaps dozens of battlefields face imminent threats. That's why I am so pleased to announce our most recent campaign to save land at eight critical battlefields, with one the most notable matching grant opportunities in recent memory! In order to save a total of 304 acres at Rappahannock Station, Second Manassas, White Oak Road, Ream's Station, Thompson's Station, Shiloh, Davis Bridge and Bentonville, we need a whopping $3,163,820. But the amazing news is this: we already have $3,062,120 lined up — that's 96.8% of the price!
We now only need to raise the final 3.2% — just $101,700 — to save these hallowed battlegrounds. If you and I can raise this last bit, we will leverage it an astonishing $31.11 to $1 and unleash an absolute torrent of matching money.
Will you help me save eight battlefields in one fell swoop? Learn more today.
