The Civil War Trust is America's largest non-profit organization (501(c)(3)) devoted to the preservation of our nation's endangered Civil War battlefields. Since its inception in 1999, the Trust has helped to save more than 30,000 acres of Civil War battlefields, including land at more than 100 battlefields in 20 states.
In July 2011, the American Battlefield Protection Program (ABPP) awarded the Trust a grant to develop high quality GIS datasets for 33 Civil War battlefields. ABPP funds projects conducted by federal, state, local and tribal governments, nonprofit organizations and educational institutions with the goal of safeguarding and preserving significant American battlefield lands as symbols of individual sacrifice and national heritage.
The Civil War Trust seeks qualified consultants to submit proposals to create comprehensive GIS data for thirty-three (33) significant Civil War battlefields throughout the United States. The required GIS data for each site is to be developed in accordance with the RFP specifications.
