Why Save Civil War Battlefields

“In great deeds something abides. On great fields something stays. Forms change and pass; bodies disappear; but spirits linger, to consecrate ground for the vision-place of souls.”

Since 1989, STFB has worked in close cooperation with local governments and local, state and national historical preservation organizations to raise awareness, educate, and build support for the need to save this and other significant sites.
