American Battlefield Protection Program

The National Park Service (NPS), American Battlefield Protection Program (ABPP) promotes the preservation of significant historic battlefields associated with wars on American soil.


The goals of the ABPP program are:

1) to protect battlefields and sites associated with armed conflicts that influenced the course of our history,

2) to encourage and assist all Americans in planning for the preservation, management, and interpretation of these sites, and

3) to raise awareness of the importance of preserving battlefields and related sites for future generations.

The ABPP focuses primarily on land use, cultural resource and site management planning, and public education.
