Honor Our Soldiers

299 Signatures Goal: 100,000

What happens to American history when those who lived it can no longer tell their stories? What happens when an important historical site is plowed over for development and covered in concrete? Today, the integrity of many historical sites is at risk. Nearly 20 percent of our nation’s Civil War battlefields have already been destroyed — denied forever to future generations. Of those that remain, only 15 percent are protected as National Parks. These hallowed grounds are living monuments to the heroism of all of America’s men and women in uniform. The blood shed on these hallowed battlegrounds represents the sacrifices endured in all of America’s wars, from Lexington and Concord to Iraq and Afghanistan. Preserving these historic shrines for our children and grandchildren helps all of us learn what it means to be an American. To honor our soldiers — both past or present — PLEASE SIGN this petition to show your support for the preservation of the hallowed ground on which Americans have fought and died.
