Who We Are

The River Raisin National Battlefield Park Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit philanthropic educational
organization that operates in partnership with the National Park Service to preserve and develop
the River Raisin National Battlefield Park in southeast Michigan.

River Raisin National Battlefield Park preserves and interprets a remarkable part of America’s Untold Story of the War of 1812. The stories of the River Raisin are unforgettable, and dimensions of the aftermath continue to impact us today. The Battlefield Foundation is dedicated to working with the National Park Service to restore and develop the Battlefield in a way that ensures visitors are educated and challenged to think about the past as it relates to our future, realizing their connection to the events that took place here just over 200 years ago, and invites you to join efforts to preserve its sacred grounds for the benefit of future generations.
