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 and Maintenance of non park property owned by other historic preservation organizations in and around the Wilderness Battlefield.

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 efray cost of FoWB’s management and operations, to include hosting living history events on non park owned property. FoWB sponsored educational programs such as Military Medicine, Taming the Wilderness, and special guided tours, as well as the website and other outreach related activities.
