Programs: The mission of the Civil War Trust: The preservation of America’s significant Civil War battlefields by protecting the land, and educating the public about the vital roles those battlefields played in directing the course of our nation’s history.

The Civil War Trust is the only national charitable organization in the country working to preserve historic land where the Civil War was fought. The Civil War Trust and its predecessor organizations have been saving land since 1987; in total we have saved over 40,000 acres of land.

In addition to saving hallowed ground, we also believe that there is a great need to educate the public about the importance of the Civil War. We are dedicated to interpreting the War and its significant battles, and do so for teachers, students, and the public through technological resources and innovative methods such as our state-of-the-art website and Battle Apps®.
