The Civil War Trust announced this morning a new identity to better reflect its expanding mission: The American Battlefields Trust. The new umbrella organization will encompass the organization's efforts to save battlefields from the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, and the Civil War.
"The Civil War Trust isn’t going away," the Trust said in making its announcement. "[I]t remains the principal division of the American Battlefield Trust. You’ll continue to see its name and logo whenever we announce a new acquisition opportunity at a Civil War battlefield."
