Civil War Battlefield Preservation Act of 2007

Filed under: Historic Preservation — John Maass @ 7:46 pm

The Civil War Preservation Trust is asking all friends of battlefield preservation to contact your U.S. Senators and Representative and urge them to cosponsor the Civil War Battlefield Preservation Act of 2007, H.R. 2933 in the House and S. 1921 in the Senate.Washington officials need to know their constituents care about Civil War battlefield preservation! Please call and write your federal lawmakers to urge them to cosponsor the Civil War Battlefield Preservation Act. We have included sample letters and phone scripts in the brown menu box on the left of this page to make your involvement as quick and easy as possible.

If your Senators and Representatives have already signed on as cosponsors, please write them a short letter thanking them for their support – it is important they know they are doing something their constituents want!

Also, if possible, please consider arranging a meeting at your local Senate or Congressional office. Believe it or not, a quick 20 minute meeting with Congressional aides can have a dramatic impact on elected officials. If you are a member of a Civil War Roundtable or reenactment group, you may want to consider going with several other members of your organization. CWPT is happy to help you prepare for these meetings – please contact Brent Laurenz at takeaction@civilwar.org or 800-298-7878 ext. 220 if you need assistance.
