The American Battlefield Trust strongly believes battlefields are outdoor classrooms where Americans—especially young people—can find a tangible link to the past that helps bring it to life.

The American Battlefield Trust Field Trip Fund builds upon this belief by funding field trips to battlefields and other related historic sites for students who might not otherwise be able to make the trip. This is just one way you can help the next generation of Americans learn about our unique history.

Support the Field Trip Fund!

Today, I ask for your help to pass along that spark of learning and excitement; I ask for your help to create the next generation of battlefield preservationists who will fight to save our nation’s history when you and I cannot do it any longer.
