Central Virginia Battlefields Trust
The Central Virginia Battlefields Trust (CVBT) is the steward of ground before you. The CVBT is a non-profit lands conservation organization dedicated to preserving Civil War battlefields and landmarks. Since its organization in 1996, the CVBT has been instrumental in saving more than 900 acres of battlefield land. Most of this land is associated with the Battles of Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, the Wilderness, and Spotsylvania Court House.
The CVBT has not only saved hundreds of historic battlefield acreage, but also preserved the memories and meanings of what unfolded on these crucial grounds. Please help us to protect these battlefields. To learn more about the CVBT and what you can do, visit our website at www.cvbt.org.
