Donald Trump is spending his first presidential paycheck on sprucing up a Civil War battlefield.

The White House announced in April that the president would donate his first quarter paycheck – or $78,333.32 – to the National Park Service.

And Interior Department Secretary Ryan Zinke revealed on Wednesday that all of this green would be given to the Antietam National Battlefield, site of the bloodiest single-day battle in American history. “The President’s donation will allow generations of Americans to learn about our history and heritage on this sacred site,” said Secretary Zinke in a statement.

Keith Snyder, the park’s chief of resources, education and visitors services, told Moneyish that they also received matching donations from the Civil War Trust, the National Parks Foundation and the Save Historic Antietam Foundation, for a whopping total of $264,213 to restore the landmark site.

“This will go toward two big projects that have long been our deferred maintenance list, that we now have the funds to complete,” he said. That includes restoring the Newcomer House, which has stood on the grounds since the Civil War more than 150 years ago, as well as replacing approximately 5,000 linear feet of historic fence line running through the battlefield. The park also recently completed a $2 million, 15-month renovation of the historic stone Burnside Bridge, which had collapsed in 2014.

Nearly 23,000 soldiers were killed in the Battle of Antietam on Sept. 17, 1862, making it the bloodiest single-day battle not just in the Civil War, but in all of American history.

But you’ll be forgiven if you don’t remember this from your high school history books, since the battle is often overshadowed by Gettysburg, which saw twice as many men killed – 52,000 – over a three-day bloodbath. Plus, it was followed by President Abraham Lincoln’s memorable “Gettysburg Address.”

“The military historians find Gettysburg more intellectually and strategically interesting, combined with the fact that Lincoln made one of the most iconic speeches in American history at the end,” James Grossman, executive director of the American Historical Association, told Moneyish. “But Antietam is significant because it’s the bloodiest day of battle, and also because this Union victory was the one that Lincoln needed to issue the Emancipation Proclamation [which freed slaves in Confederate states] days later, which changed the course of the war, and the nation.”

Still, critics argue that the check won’t make up for the millions of dollars that the National Parks Service stands to lose if the Trump Administration’s proposed budget gets approved. It would cut 12% from the annual budget of the Department of the Interior, which manages 530 million acres of land, or about 20% of all U.S. territory.

“The money he is donating is pennies compared to what we allocate in our national budget,” agreed Grossman. “Giving almost a hundred thousand to a single battlefield, and then to cut the National Park Service’s budget by millions, is inconsistent and irrational.”
