Go to their website to see ALL the details, but suffice it to say that, for the next five years (and long after that, of course . . .) the Sesquicentennial will focus more attention on the War Between the States than there has been in the last twenty-five years.
Each time I go to the site, they get better. At first, it was difficult to figure out how to give a donation in someone else's name. Now, just go to "Give An Acre," and it is all laid out for you. The entry level gift is just $25.00, which is even cheaper than bees at Heifer.
They will send a beautiful e-mail card to whomever you wish to donate for, and the recipient even gets a year's worth of their magazine, Hallowed Ground. And about Hallowed Ground . . . they have an editor who is reaching out to the historians who blog and write for Emerging Civil War, so you just might see a certain writer in its pages some time soon. Or not. Hoping!!
There is more, but I will save it for a later post. Here is a hint: "What's in YOUR knapsack?"
