WASHINGTON – From lesser known battles to world war, historians and preservationists study and preserve battlefields across the country that capture the American story.  Today the National Park Service awarded more than $1.19 million in American Battlefield Protection grants to research, document, or interpret dozens of significant American battlefields representing more than 300 years of history.

“From a swamp of Connecticut, to shipwrecks off the shore of Yorktown, to a small island in Pearl Harbor; these places hold clues to our past,” said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis.  “Preserving and understanding these sites allows us to reveal a complex history representing multiple sides of the story, as well as stories of sacrifice and heroism that ultimately shaped our nation today.”

This year’s grants provide funding for projects at endangered battlefields from the Indian Wars, Pequot War, Revolutionary War, Second Seminole War, Civil War, and World War II.  Awards were given to projects in 16 states entailing archeology, mapping, cultural resource survey work, documentation, planning, education, and interpretation.

Federal, tribal, state, and local governments, nonprofit organizations, and educational institutions are eligible for the battlefield grants, which are awarded annually.  Since 1996, the American Battlefield Protection Program has awarded more than $16 million to help preserve significant historic battlefields associated with wars on American soil.
