Friends of Wilderness Battlefield comprises members from more than two dozen states and Canada. Nearly one- half of our members reside in the Virginia counties of Orange and Spotsylvania. Local members are integrally involved with the organization and its preservation activities, including interpretation at Ellwood, battlefield maintenance, events support, and community outreach and education.
Members from outside the immediate battlefield area share varied reasons for their backing of FoWB, be it a zeal for history, a passion for preservation, or an ancestral connection.
The funds received through memberships and donations defray costs of FoWB’s management and operations at Ellwood, FoWB sponsored educational programs such as the African American Civil War Experience, Military Medicine, Taming the Wilderness, and special guided tours, as well as the website and other outreach related activities.
