Protect Second Manassas, Champion Hill, and Appomattox Court House with our Special Match

Protect Second Manassas, Champion Hill, and Appomattox Court House with our Special Match

A few days ago, I told you about an amazing, limited-time opportunity to celebrate the season of giving by giving a gift that will benefit Americans of all ages, both now and in the future. Thanks to an extremely generous match made available by one of our donors, any gift made between now and the end of the year will have triple the impact, up to $125,000!

I know this is a busy time of year for you and your family, but as you are planning for the holidays, please keep us in mind. We need your help if we’re to save sites such as Second Manassas, Champion Hill, and Appomattox Court House. It was at places like these that hundreds of thousands of young Americans from both North and South laid down their lives in the struggle that defined our nation.

Everything the Civil War Trust has achieved, we have achieved because of members like you. I know we can count on you again to help ensure that sites like those I mentioned (and many more) will be permanently protected from developers.

We owe it not only to the men who died at these sacred spots, but also to the millions of American children who will learn the amazing story of our nation’s history at some of the best outdoor classrooms in the world.
