Last Thursday, the Civil War Trust joined with the National Park Service and State of Tennessee to make announcements regarding the permanent preservation of 925 acres on the Shiloh Battlefield. The achievements discussed were threefold and included the successful completion of efforts to purchase 267 acres at Fallen Timbers in McNariy County as well as the transfer of 167 acres from the Trust to the park and the launch of a $1.25 million campaign to preserve an additional 491 acres inside the park.
