Battlefields 101: Connecting America to its History

Battlefields 101 is the Foundation’s new education program which is currently getting underway and will be rolled out in stages over the coming year.  Battlefields are outdoor classrooms and history is the greatest teacher we will ever have.  Battlefields 101 will connect students to America’s past; using historic places as classrooms to invoke thought, foster discussion, promote learning and inspire future generations . . . .

You can help to send Battlefields 101 students to our 2020 National Conference in Staunton, Virginia. There they will be immersed in history and will have the opportunity to learn from the nation’s foremost historians . . . they will explore the battlefields; tread on hallowed ground and experience our History where it unfolded.  You can make America’s future brighter by teaching someone about its past . . . . you can make a difference.  For every $495 raised one Battlefields 101 student will be able to attend our 3 day conference.  Students will be selected in consultation with their school districts and following their completion of an application and short essay.

Please contribute to the Battlefields 101 program – give a student an experience they will never forget and help us keep history alive!
