I am a long-time supporter of the Trust and contributed to that project (being from Kentucky and all).
I'm not from Kentucky but this one was important enough for me to kick in twice. Hard to believe that this could still be done 150+ years later. A salute to those who were involved in saving the other parts earlier.

Dear Kitty,
This is actor Steve Zahn, Kentucky resident and battlefield preservationist, writing you today on behalf of the American Battlefield Trust with some very exciting news. Thanks to your support, 128 acres of hallowed ground have been forever saved at Perryville! This land fills a "hole in the donut" and substantially completes the preservation of one of the most important battlefields of the entire Civil War. This is a historic accomplishment and you should feel immensely proud.

The ABT has announced that the 128 acre "donut hole" at Perryville has been saved. Thanks to all who donated. This means that 90% or so of the field is preserved. Remarkable.
I was very happy to contribute to that acquisition/preservation project. Very much hope to visit Perryville some day.
