Civil War Preservation Trust is Now Civil War Trust

The Civil War Preservation Trust has announced that they are changing their name to Civil War Trust as of January 11, 2011. They also have a new logo. According to their website, the reason for the change is:

“Despite the numerous successes this organization has enjoyed over the years, we’ve found that our name remains relatively unknown, even among many self-described Civil War buffs.  This lack of recognition was compounded by the unwieldy length of the name, which often resulted in abbreviation — and the acronym “CWPT” simply did not tell you who we are or what we do.  Instead, the Civil War Trust far better conveys that this organization is the world leader in protecting these historic landscapes and promoting their appreciation through education programs on-site, online and in the classroom.”

You can learn more about this on the Civil War Trust website.
