A resident of Oklahoma City, Duke Ligon owns and manages Mekusukey Oil Company and serves Peter J. Solomon Company as a senior advisor. Outside of his work in the energy sector, Duke Ligon holds positions on the boards of several nonprofit organizations, including that of the Civil War Trust.

The nonpartisan Civil War Trust works to preserve history by protecting significant battlefields of the Civil War, the War of 1812, and the Revolutionary War. However, urban sprawl and development poses an urgent threat to the preservation of these sites, and many have already been lost.

One way to support the Civil War Trust is through membership in the Color Bearers. Modeled after their 19th-century counterparts, Color Bearers commit themselves as leaders of the mission to save the nation’s battlegrounds. For a monthly fee, Color Bearer memberships are available in five successive levels: Regimental, Brigade, Division, Corps, and National. Each subsequent level enjoys the benefits of the level or levels prior.
