Civil War Trust
October 30, 2012

The Civil War Trust is a uniquely effective organization. It has been extremely successful in its core mission - to save battlefield land. It does this by raising awareness of preservation opportunities for its 55,000 members through effective mailings and a wonderful quarterly magazine. In recent years it has put emphasis on education - interpreting battlefields it has preserved, making them accessible to all, and they have created a wonderful internet website to support Civil War preservation and education. The result is that the CWT has preserved over 32,000 acres over the past +20 years. I have had a chance to watch this organization and its predecessors grow from a new idea to the very professional organization it is today. This view has come from close observation, as I started raising money for battllefield preservation in 1989. The Trust became the default organization to direct our fund raising to due to the trust it built with the Civil War community. I have personally supported the Trust since then. The battlefield where my ancestor was wounded, Brandy Station, was saved in large part by the Civil War Trust and its members supporting the local Brandy Station preservation group. The CWT is worthy of your support.
