Heritage Programs: FoWB has developed two heritage programs designed to recognize and honor people who have direct ties to the Battle of the Wilderness or Ellwood. The Wilderness Brigade consists of lineal and collateral descendants of participants in the Battle of the Wilderness. The Ellwood Legacy consists of lineal and collateral descendants of people who lived, visited, or worked at Ellwood prior to the National Park Service ownership in 1971.
