Group Raises Funds to Preserve Va. Battlefield

Posted:

HARRISONBURG, Va. (AP)- A preservation group is raising money to protect part of a Civil War battlefield in Rockingham County.

The campaign by the Civil War Preservation Trust seeks to raise $161,250 to help pay for an easement that would protect 83 acres of the Cross Keys Battlefield.

The Washington, D.C.-based group is working with the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation, which would acquire the easement. The total cost is $374,750.

Civil War Preservation Trust spokeswoman Mary Koik said that land around the property already has been protected. The easement would close that gap.

Koik says the trust has preserved a total 199 acres at Cross Keys.
