Civil War Preservation Trust recognizes Tennessee champions of battlefield preservation

Civil War Preservation TrustFranklin, TN – During a ceremony this morning at the Franklin Marriott Cool Springs, the national Civil War Preservation Trust (CWPT) recognized two battlefield advocacy groups and a long-time Tennessee preservation official with Chairman’s Awards for Achievement in Historic Preservation. The awards, presented by CWPT Chairman John L. Nau, III, honored the Tennessee Civil War Preservation Association, the Battle of Franklin Trust, and Tennessee Wars Commission director Fred Prouty.

According to Nau, the recipients are among CWPT’s most valuable partners in protecting and interpreting significant Civil War sites.  “Without the dedicated efforts of outstanding allies at the state and local levels, the work of this organization would be immeasurably more difficult.  These individuals and organizations represent the very finest efforts and intentions of the historic preservation movement and deserve our profound gratitude,” he said.
