Review for Civil War Trust, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Who is saving our History, grabbing hold of what made our country what it is?
The Civil War Trust (CWT) has been saving Civil War Battlefield land for many years. CWT also has dedicated significant resources to provide education and educational tools to help individuals and educators to learn about the many aspects of the American Civil War. Without the efforts of CWT, so much of our history would be forgotten in the form of shopping centers or housing or other buildings. The lands saved and the materials provided for education provide for the understanding of what our ancestors sacrificed to keep our country whole and to free people who were enslaved. So many soldiers died or were wounded fighting for their cause. Significant blood was shed long ago on the battlefields preserved with efforts of the CWT staff. Our history needs to be preserved and learned, what better way than to have the Civil War Trust buy land and provide educational materials. I have been a donating member since 2001, and I am proud of the way CWT handles the money I have contributed.

Review for Civil War Trust, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a member of the Civil War Trust since 2001. It seems I can not help them enough. They deserve more than I can give. Their efforts to preserve our history and heritage are second to none. Their successes are masterful considering their accomplishments in the number of acres preserved and their educational projects performed. The purpose of preserving Civil War Battlefields is to be able to tell the story of how this country fought to preserve the rights of each side and how the country mended after the harsh destruction of the war. Where in history has their been a war when one race fought itself to free another? The nation should be proud to have survived such a period in history. The Civil War Trust accomplishes its mission with a dedicated, resourceful staff and advisory board. A wholesome group of individuals that perform well as a team. I am honored to be associated with such people.
