National Park Service Awards $400,000 to Protect Three Civil War Battlefields

WASHINGTON – National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis today announced more than $400,000 in grants from the Land and Water Conservation Fund to help preserve more than 300 acres of land at three of America’s Civil War battlefields threatened with damage or destruction by urban and suburban development.  The grant projects are at the Mansfield (La.), Glorieta Pass (N.M.) and Bentonville (N.C.) battlefields. 

“These grants help safeguard our nation’s Civil War battlefields and allow Americans the opportunity to learn about democracy, sacrifice, heroism and hope in the very places where those concepts shaped our history,” said Jarvis.  “Preserving these sites for future generations is an important way to honor the courage and service of our nation’s military, especially as we commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War.” 

The grants are from the National Park Service’s American Battlefield Protection Program, one of more than a dozen programs administered by the National Park Service that provide states and local communities technical assistance, recognition, and funding to help preserve their own history and create close-to-home recreation opportunities. Consideration for the Civil War battlefield land acquisition grants is given to battlefields listed in the National Park Service’s Civil War Sites Advisory Commission Report on the Nation’s Civil War Battlefields (CWSAC Report).  

Grants are awarded to units of state and local governments for the fee simple acquisition of land, or for the non-federal acquisition of permanent, protective interests in land (easements).  Private non-profit groups may apply in partnership with state or local government sponsors.  Complete guidelines for grant eligibility and application forms are available online at: http://www.nps.gov/history/hps/abpp
