Help Save Seminary Ridge at Gettysburg
VIDEO | We are excited to announce an amazing opportunity to save the land on Seminary Ridge where the Theological Seminary sits. This is where Union generals John Reynolds and John Buford first clashed with Confederates A.P. Hill and Dorsey Pender on the first day at Gettysburg. Click here to be a part of this first preservation opportunity under our new umbrella name, the American Battlefield Trust.
In the fields outside a small Pennsylvania town, two massive armies collided unexpectedly, provoking the bloodiest battle of the Civil War. Read a brief history from Civil War Trust's Hallowed Ground Magazine.
The Gettysburg Battlefield is, quite possibly, the best preserved and best memorialized Civil War site in the country, thanks to a process that began almost immediately after the guns fell silent. Learn about the process of preserving the First Day's Battlefield in the Civil War Trust's Hallowed Ground Magazine, 150th Anniversary of Gettysburg edition.
