Help Preserve 117 Acres at Buffington Island
The 117-acre tract in Meigs County, Ohio, is threatened by residential development and nearby mining that would encroach on the battlefield and nearby state memorial park. It was here that General John Hunt Morgan began his most ambitious raid of the war at The Battle of Buffington Island—one of the most significant battles fought north of the Ohio River.
If saved, this will be a “first-acre” purchase in the state of Ohio—the first Trust-saved land on this battlefields and preserved for you and for future generations. Together, they have a total transaction value of $225,000 — and we only need to raise $64,800! If the Trust is successful raising the funds, this parcel will be added to our more than 150 sites saved in 25 states.
