We're not lost, Sergeant, We're in … France

Fleetwood Hill Preserved!

Through the hard work of large group of people, not the least of which are Eric Wittenburg and Bud Hall, Fleetwood Hill on the Brandy Station Battlefield has been preserved. Governor Bob McDonnell announced yesterday that the Commonwealth of Virginia conveyed over $700,000 to the Civil War Trust to complete the funding for the acquisition of the 58 acres owned by the Troilo family. Eric’s post on it has many more details and is well-worth the read.

There is a brief mention in the Washington Post….

H/T to Craig Swain, who was also a vigorous participant in the fight.
