History Launches Civil War Preservation Effort

On this 150th anniversary of the beginning of the Civil War, the History channel has kicked off a national education and fund-raising initiative to help preserve Civil War historical sites and lands.

Called Give 150, the program asks for contributions that will go directly to the Civil War Trust & National Park Foundation for preservation efforts.

History has committed to four years of Civil War programming leading up to 2015, which will be the 150th anniversary of the war’s end.
