As HISTORY's campaign commemorating the Civil War’s 150th Anniversary draws to a close, we at HISTORY and TakePart want to thank everyone who has kindly donated to the Give 150™ initiative over the last 4 years.  Your support has made a difference and has enabled our friends at the Civil War Trust and the National Park Foundation to continue their valuable work in preserving our history.  Though Give 150 will not continue, we ask that you consider donating directly to these deserving entities (see sidebar) moving forward,  as well as your local community preservation organizations.  Thank you very much!
