They are the fields and forests where countless Americans surrendered their lives. Their names echo throughout history. They are the CIVIL WAR BATTLEFIELDS, and they are facing a crisis.
For over a century, they have stood as quiet reminders of the greatest horror this nation has ever faced. But the ever-increasing suburban sprawl along the eastern seaboard is rapidly, and literally, paving over these hallowed sites. SAVE OUR HISTORY® travels to the most threatened sites to witness firsthand the forces that are arrayed against them. We'll hear from the developers who are hoping to build on these historic sites, and meet the preservationists who are working to save and restore what is left of them.
What does it mean when we choose not to preserve our most historic sites? Can we fully comprehend, or honor, the sacrifice of the fallen soldiers without saving the soil where they surrendered their lives?
