An Unparalleled Preservation Opportunity at Gettysburg
We have the chance to change the Gettysburg battlefield forever — acquiring and restoring a key property at Pickett’s Charge.
And thanks to a special online-only Giving Tuesday challenge by a generous board member, every dollar given to help acquire and restore this key property at Pickett’s Charge — up to $50,000 — will go twice as far now through Giving Tuesday, November 29 at midnight PT.
For generations, this half-acre property that played a major role in Pickett’s Charge has been occupied by commercial development, operating as a restaurant, theater, and gift shop known as “General Pickett’s Buffet.” Now, the long-time owner is relocating, giving the Trust the opportunity to buy and restore the property at Gettysburg.
We need your support to raise $550,000 between now and December 15. This will ensure that we can close on the property at Pickett’s Buffet and then have the funds on hand to begin the restoration and interpretation of the property once the federal matching grant is received. Please make your most generous gift today.
