Photo Contest, Civil War Delaware, Berdan's Sharpshooters at Gettysburg

Photo Contest, Civil War Delaware, Berdan's Sharpshooters at Gettysburg

Walking the Trails of History Stepping onto a battlefield can be a remarkable experience. These outdoor classrooms provide a unique place to explore the past, reflect on the events that transpired on hallowed ground, and commemorate some of the most profound moments in American history. We want you to share your special moments with us.

Submit a photo of you or your family members on a battlefield: a national, state, or local park, or on preserved land owned by the Civil War Trust. Take a snapshot of you and your spouse on a hike, children with a park ranger, or grandparents taking in the scenery anything that you can capture!

Feel free to include a caption to tell us which battlefield you are visiting, and who is in the photo. Be sure to mention if you have had a hand in saving some of the acres at that same battlefield! You can find the page to upload your photos here. Please note that your submission will not immediately appear in the gallery after you have uploaded it.

You can return to vote for your favorite images. At the end of the contest, we will announce two “people’s choice” winners and one “staff favorite.” One (or many!) of the photos might appear in Hallowed Ground our award-winning magazine. All winners will receive a copy of Civil War Battlefields: Walking the Trails of History


Whether it’s Petersburg, Antietam, Chickamauga, or Manassas we can’t wait to see your photos!
