History Channel Encourages Battlefield Preservation

The History Channel is sponsoring a fundraising drive called Give150. Read details below.

In commemoration of the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War, HISTORY invites all Americans to help preserve Civil War sites and stories through the Give 150TM national campaign. Give 150TM donations will go directly to the Civil War Trust and the National Park Foundation, both non-profit 501(c)3 organizations, to help protect Civil War sites and lands, and support their interpretation.

Give 150TM will also provide the American public with the opportunity to actively give back to their own communities through service and preservation activities.

While we all know the channel is short on actual history most of the time this is a worthwhile project that might reach those who would not have been aware of these Let's hope it raises a lot of money that can be put to good use!
