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.
