Quant a miThe Civil War was the most tragic conflict in American history. For four long years, North and South clashed in hundreds of battles and skirmishes that sounded the death knell for slavery and defined us as a nation. More than 625,000 soldiers and 50,000 civilians perished as a result of the war.

The Civil War Preservation Trust (CWPT) is committed to protecting the last tangible links to this tumultuous period in American history. With 65,000 members, CWPT is the largest nonprofit battlefield preservation organization in the U.S. Its purpose is to preserve our nation’s endangered Civil War battlefields and to promote appreciation of these hallowed grounds.

CWPT’s principal goal is to preserve historic battlefield land through outright purchases, conservation easements, and partnerships with federal, state and local governments. Among the sites rescued by CWPT in recent months are key parcels at Gettysburg in Pennsylvania; Chancellorsville and Glendale in Virginia; Franklin in Tennessee; Prairie Grove in Arkansas; and Harpers Ferry in West Virginia. Over the years, CWPT has helped protect more than 25,000 acres in 18 states.

CWPT also maintains several outreach programs in support of battlefield preservation. These programs include: Hallowed Ground, our quarterly magazine; History Under Siege, an annual report on threatened Civil War battlefields; the Civil War Discovery Trail, a National Millennium Trail that links nearly 600 sites in 32 states; and Civil War Explorer, an online computer program that allows users to experience the war and its consequences.
