Color Bearer Membership: A Call to Lead

Become a Leader in Battlefield Preservation

Become a leader in battlefield preservation. Join the Color Bearers of the American Battlefield Trust, and you’ll be part of the elite team of over 1,400 members that is dedicated to saving America’s battlefields, educating the public about our nation’s story, and inspiring Americans to visit the places where history happened.

Year after year, our Color Bearers, who make up only about 3 percent of our total membership, donate nearly 50 percent of all the gifts we receive. Over the past 20 years, the Trust has saved more than 53,000 acres in 24 states. This simply would not have been possible without our Color Bearers.

This level of above-and-beyond generosity is what defines a Color Bearer and is worthy of special recognition. As a Color Bearer, you will receive special benefits as appropriate for your generosity. Ensure that these hallowed grounds are forever preserved, and that the public understands the pivotal events that happened on them.
