A Message from Brigadier General, Shane Padden, Commander – Union Army of the West
Thanks to all of your for supporting the history of our Nation, and helping preserve it and keep it alive for generations to come! Huzzah to you!!!
Our company's donation to the battlefield land at Franklin has saved it for future generations! Our name, CRAIC / 69th NYSV Co C, will appear on a permanent marker that will be a part of the battlefield. The Civil War Trust is the largest non-profit focused on saving America's endangered Civil War battlefields. The Trust has helped to save more than 34,000 acres of Civil War battlefield land in 20 different states.

In 2012 the Civil War Trust initiated a campaign to save and reclaim three key tracts at the Franklin Battlefield in Tennessee. The "Strip Center" tract - maybe one of the bloodiest and historic tracts that we've saved anywhere - will help create a critical mass of battlefield land that has been rescued from the urban landscape. With these tracts in hand the business of creating a true battlefield visitor experience can begin.
