The opportunity to finish part of a preservation puzzle and save an artillery position from Jackson's Flank Attack! This 1.2 acres of hallowed ground will complete battlefield preservation efforts at the intersection of historic Orange Turnpike (Route 3) and Orange Plank Road. We need to raise $60,000 to ensure that this historic artillery position can be saved forever.

ACT NOW!

The places where thousands of Americans gave their lives during the Civil War are rapidly being lost to development. Their suffering and sacrifice deserve our respect for the grounds where they fell. The Central Virginia Battlefields Trust has made significant progress toward "preserving dirt and grass" at the Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Wilderness, and Spotsylvania Court House battlefields.
