Civil War Trust
October 4, 2013
Since I was a young boy, I have always been interested in U.S. history. In 8th grade, I was fortunate to go on a class trip to Washington DC and we also stopped at gettysburg. This fired my passion for Civil War history. About 10 years ago, I learned of the Civil War Trust and the work they did in striving to preserve historic battlefields. I joined and have since increased my support levels. I gladly did so because the Trust uses my donations efficiently and wisely to protect and preserve the history that is so important to me. As the Trust does, my family carefully stewards the dollars we give to non-profit organizations. After our church, we believe the money we give to the Trust is the best money we can donate. In 2012, I saw first-hand what happens to battlefields if exposed to rampant development. We visited Franklin, Tennessee which was the site of a major and bloody engagement but is now substantially paved over. Fortunately, the trust is endeavoring to recover portions of the battlefield acre by acre. I support this and other Trust efforts and know they will maximize the value of my donation.

I can't think of any changes other than increasing the number of members supporting Civil War Trust efforts.
