Preservation, Historic Sites, & Artifacts 



The Harrisburg CWRT’s founders were ardent preservationists and avid collectors of Civil War artifacts.  They were charter members of the Gettysburg Battlefield Preservation Association.  Approximately 20% of the current Gettysburg National Military Park was purchased through their dedicated fundraising efforts.  Preservation remains an important part of our mission.  The Harrisburg CWRT adopted the monument dedicated to Brevetted Major General John White Geary on Culp’s Hill in Gettysburg. Funds were provided for the monument’s refurbishment and an endowment was established for its future maintenance and upkeep. We also sponsored the official dedication of this monument on August 11, 2007.
