Legacy Challenge Complete


 

YOU DID IT!

THANK YOU to the 50 new Honor Guard members who joined through the Legacy Challenge!

 

For each new Honor Guard member, a $2,500 gift was made in their name to the American Battlefield Trust.

Challenge participants raised $125,000 for battlefield preservation – and we couldn’t be more grateful.

 

Thank you to our Challenge participants – without you, we simply could not save the land we do.
America’s hallowed ground will be preserved, thanks to you – now and in the future!
