The Civil War Preservation Trust is America’s largest non-profit organisation. Their aim is to preserve the battlefields of the Civil War, to which end they have already saved huge tracts of land. As thousands of Irishmen also fought and fell on these great battlegrounds, their work is of real relevance to Ireland and to those interested in the Irish emigrant experience. The Trust have recently set up a page on Patrick Cleburne, ‘Stonewall of the West’, which allows visitors to donate towards the preservation of battlefields where the famous Corkman fought. They have already saved 2,026 acres of land on these battlefields, but there is more to do. Visit the page here to see what you can do to help the Civil War Preservation Trust in its mission.
