The Civil War Preservation Trust (CWPT) is accepting nominations for its annual report on endangered Civil War battlefields. The report, entitled History Under Siege, identifies the most threatened Civil War sites in the United States and what can be done to rescue them.
The 2009 endangered battlefields report will be released next spring. Any Civil War battlefield is eligible to for nomination and consideration. The ten chosen sites will be selected based on geographic location, military significance and the immediacy of current threats.
Individuals and groups are encouraged to fill out the nomination form available online by clicking here. Applications should include photographs of the site and a detailed description of recent threats. Nominations must be postmarked no later than October 10, 2008.
