Sites associated with wars fought on American soil help provide a means for Americans to understand and interpret various periods in our country's history. Unfortunately many of these battlefields are at risk due to a lack of identification or preservation assessments. At the direction of Congress the ABPP has, over the past two decades, identified, surveyed, and assessed significant sites associated with the American Revolution, the Civil War, and the War of 1812. In addition to these studies, the ABPP has either undertaken or supported the identification, survey, and assessment of many other battles associated with additional wars ranging from 16th-century contact encounters to World War II actions in the Pacific.
