The American Civil War was a turning point in our country. It pitted brother against brother and effected the lives of every American of that time. It changed America and the way we now live. We need to remember and respect this part of our history.
We are losing about 1 acre of Civil War battlefield land every day. This is history that can never be reclaimed.
For the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War, consider donating $1.50 to help protect Civil War battlefields throughout our country. History.com started the Give150 Campaign which contributes to money to the Civil War Trust, and The National Park Foundation. These organizations continually work to preserve history.
