Protect Virginia's Battlefields

Tell Your State Senator: Protect Virginia’s Battlefields!

We need your help as a Virginian to reach out to your General Assembly representatives over the phone. Thank you for lending your voice to urge your state senator to support measures to increase funding for the Virginia Battlefield Preservation Fund and to direct the state to study the creation of a Brandy Station and Cedar Mountain State Park.

Please complete the form on this page, and you will soon receive a phone call at the number you enter. Then, simply answer your phone, and we’ll make sure that you’re patched through to the right office. Once your senator or a staff member is on the line, keep the call short and simple. Here are the steps:

  • This is most important: let the person who answers your call know who you are — tell them your name and where you live, so that they’ll know you’re a constituent.

  • Explain that you’re calling to ask for your senator’s support of two budget amendments – one that would increase funding for the Virginia Battlefield Preservation Fund over the next two years, and another that would direct the state to study the creation of a Brandy Station and Cedar Mountain State Park.

  • Provide your senator’s office with the specific budget amendment numbers for these amendments:

    • Item 385 #4sVirginia Battlefield Preservation Fund increase

    • Items 374 #12s and 374 #7sBrandy Station and Cedar Mountain State Park study

  • Above all, be polite — and be concise. When you’re finished, thank the person on the line for their time.
