The mission of Central Virginia Battlefields Trust is
to preserve land associated with the four major campaigns: Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Wilderness and Spotsylvania.
We've saved nearly 1,500 acres of
endangered battlefields since 1996!
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.
