Battlefield restoration and preservation is an integral part of the planned Longstreet monument. Architect Sibley Jennings will be restoring the Pitzer Woods area around the monument to its 1863 appearance with a reforestation project of approximately 30 trees of local hardwood species.
When you purchase one of these trees, it will be dedicated in your honor or as a memorial to whomever you specify. In appreciation of your $200 donation, you will receive:
* A Certificate of Dedication with your name or the name of the person or organization for whom you want the tree dedicated. This certificate will be signed by the Longstreet Memorial Fund chairman and contain the official seal of the fund; a momento suitable for framing and certain to become an important family treasure.
* A map showing the location of your tree. Once the monument is constructed and the reforestation project completed, you will receive a map which will allow you to locate your tree when you visit the Longstreet monument. Your children and generations beyond will be able to touch and admire the tree you had planted and dedicated in support of the Longstreet monument.
* Listing in the Longstreet Book of Honor. As a contributor to the fund, your name and the name for whom your tree was dedicated will appear in this important leather-bound volume along with the tree locator map.
