Review for Civil War Trust, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a member of the trust for many years. My gifts are modest, but frequent, as I have made it my goal to support each campaign. The Trust is very effectively managed, and I have never felt the need to question any decisions management has made.

I enjoy walking the ground we have saved and contemplating the sacrifices made on those grounds. My greatest satisfaction is knowing that my children, grandchildren and generations beyond them will be able to walk and cherish those same grounds.

There are indeed many worthwhile charitable organizations, but I can think of none other than the Civil War Trust that will provide such a long term benefit to this country and its' citizens.

Review for Civil War Trust, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a life-time Civil War buff. Three of my great-great-grandfathers served in the CSA...thankfully one survived! I have strongly and generously supported the Civil War Trust since January of 1998. Although I contribute to other worthy causes, CWT is at the top of my list. I have attended several meetings, and met many staff members, all of whom are genuinely dedicated and devoted to the preservation of battlefields that played a role in shaping our nation as we know it today. I am thankful that my (modest) donations not only help preserve these historical sites, but also help educate the youth of today about their importance. I am grateful that someday my grand-children, and possibly even their grand-children, will be able to visit these "Hallowed Grounds". Respectfully submitted...John E. McAuliffe, MD.
