The Trust team is lean and mean. Composed of professionals with backgrounds ranging from real estate, to politics, to event planning — and everything in between — our staff is united by a commitment to excellence and a passion for keeping American history alive.
We love what we do. Every staff member is, in their own way, working toward the same goal: preserving America’s hallowed battlegrounds and educating the public about what happened there and why it matters. Learn more about the Trust’s mission and guiding principles.
