Jim Lighthizer Retirement Announcement

VIDEO | Jim Lighthizer announces his retirement to the dedicated members of the American Battlefield Trust after 20 years as the head of the organization. While Jim is looking forward to spending more time with his family, he has no intensions of "leaving" the Trust, as he will remain on the Board of Trustees and will also serve as President Emeritus. When Jim accepted the position in 1999, the Trust had 7,000 acres of preserved battlefield land. Thanks to our devoted supporters, that number has grown to 52,000 acres and also includes a deep network of history education content.
