Fueled by the generosity of acquisitions and leads the way in education, professional teacher development and heritage tourism, the Civil War Trust has been Charity Navigator "Four Star Charity," the highest rating, for seven years running, an achievement attained by only the top two percent of charities. A fascinating, rough-and-tumble history of the people, the places and modern day heroes who have honored our nation's history.
