Most Endangered Battlefields 2008
History Under Siege 2008

CWPT's 2008 Most Endangered Battlefields Report:

History Under Siege is more than a list of threatened historic sites – it is also a plan for saving the last remaining links to a moment in history that defined us as a nation.

Although many battlefields are in danger of being lost forever, CWPT is making significant progress in its fight to preserve these important sites. In 2007 CWPT rescued more than 1,600 acres of hallowed ground at legendary battlefields like Champion Hill, Shiloh, and Petersburg. Since our creation two decades ago, CWPT has protected more than 25,000 acres at 99 sites in 18 states.

Despite such success, our work is far from done. We hope this report energizes both long-term supporters and new allies to continue the fight to protect and preserve these priceless treasures.
