From Old North Bridge in Concord to the stillness at Appomattox, the decisive battles of America’s first century were fought on 13,000 battlefields in 36 states. These landscapes are outdoor classrooms, and by protecting them, we are creating living memorials — not just to the 800,000 Americans who perished in those conflicts, but to all of the men and women who have answered their country’s call, prepared to give the last full measure of devotion.
