Everyday, Civil War battleground is lost. We save it!
Since 1996 CVBT has been purchasing historic land and advocating for battlefield preservation, cooperating with local government and partnering with developers and citizens to accomplish the mission.
CVBT focuses on the land associated with the campaigns and battles of Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Wilderness, and Spotsylvania. During the American Civil War, the central Virginia region saw thousands of troops, four major battles ranking in the top ten costly in U.S. History, and thousands of casualties.
If you are interested in American history, stories of courage, and preserving turning point sites, join us in the campaign to save battleground and use this green space to teach stories of courage.
