326 Acres at New Market Heights, North Anna, and Second Manassas

326 Acres at New Market Heights, North Anna, and Second Manassas

I am writing to you about an incredible opportunity to save 326 acres of hallowed ground in the Civil War’s most fought-over state, Virginia.

As of this writing, you and I have saved more than 24,000 acres of battlefield land in the Old Dominion. But when you think of just how much happened in Virginia the first major land battle of the war, the site of Robert E. Lee’s surrender, and more than 120 battles and skirmishes in between it’s easy to understand why we have done so much work there.

We are currently working to preserve land at three battlefields: Second Manassas, North Anna, and New Market Heights. At Second Manassas, we are adding 167 acres to the more than 200 acres we have already preserved there and preventing the construction of McMansions on a key piece of hallowed ground.

Farther south, we have the opportunity to save 126 acres at North Anna, including the site of the historic Fox House. This was a key battle during General Ulysses S. Grant’s Overland Campaign of 1864, and this piece of ground Robert E. Lee reportedly stopped for a glass of buttermilk before the battle began is considered the lynchpin of the Confederate line.

Last but by no means least we have the chance to save 33 acres of core battlefield at New Market Heights. Standing here on September 29, 1864, you would have seen United States Colored Troops 14 of whom received the Medal of Honor charging against Confederate earthworks in a successful assault.

All told, these 326 acres are valued at more than $5.6 million. But, thanks to an incredible $33.42-to-these $1 match, you and I can save these tangible pieces of American history for $167,900. Help us preserve these key chapters of the American story by saving the ground that saw so much valor and sacrifice during our nation’s defining conflict.

Save Three Virginia Battlefields.

3 Years of Campaign 1776

Posted on November 14th, 2017 under . Posted by

This month marks the third anniversary of Campaign 1776, our national initiative to protect, interpret, and promote the battlefields associated with the American Revolution and the War of 1812. Since its debut, you have been a key part of many remarkable preservation achievements. Thanks to you, we have saved 650 acres of land rooted in these early American wars that would have remained unprotected and could easily have been lost forever.

The numbers below help tell a piece of the story of what we’ve accomplished together in these past three years. I feel an immense sense of pride in these shared milestones, and I hope you feel the same.

I am both honored and humbled by your support to save the hallowed ground where America was founded. Thank you for ensuring that battlefield land is protected for future generations to recognize the compelling story that it has to tell. I look forward to what we will accomplish together in the future.

Honor Our Veterans

Honor Our Veterans

On November 19, 1863, speaking at the dedication ceremony in Gettysburg for the Soldiers’ National Cemetery, President Abraham Lincoln remarked that “The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.” In truth no one has ever forgotten, nor will anyone ever forget, what Lincoln said that day. But Lincoln was right in predicting that Americans would remember with profound gratitude those who offer, and all too often give, the last full measure of devotion so that “government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

Such gratitude is owed in equal measure to all those veterans who came before and all those who have come since. These men and women who sacrifice so much represent the best of America.

At the Civil War Trust, we understand and take seriously the responsibility to honor our veterans not just on Veterans’ Day, but every day. In protecting and forever preserving the land hallowed by the sacrifices of veterans of the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, and the Civil War, we honor the sacrifices that America’s citizen soldiers have made and continue to make.

Through initiatives such as our partnership with the Marine Corps University Foundation   to organize staff rides, we ensure that active-duty military personnel, the veterans of tomorrow, are able to take full advantage of the educational opportunities offered by historic battlefields. Through the groundbreaking work of our History and Education Department we make certain that the heroism of yesterday’s veterans is never forgotten.

A year-and-a-half after delivering his address at Gettysburg, Lincoln stood beneath the East Portico of the US Capitol and charged the American people to “care for him who shall have borne the battle.” The last veterans of the Civil War passed on decades ago, but the task of caring for their memory and honoring their sacrifices is one the Civil War Trust will never abandon.
