CWPT initiative on the Brandy Station Battlefield

Today at Brandy Station: July 23, 2010

Today, the Civil War Preservation Trust announced an effort to raise $67,000 to secure 782 acres of land on the Brandy Station Battlefield. The money will be used to pay costs of creating conservation easements on two separate properties.

What this will do is allow the owners tax credits. In return the land, no matter who owns it, cannot be improved (houses, etc.). In other words, it remains pristine. As is.

If you could place a trooper, be he blue or gray down on this acreage, he would be challenged to know what year it was. (OK, he may see cars and airplanes - but you get my point)
