Off Topic--Brandywine Battlefield
Off the Civil War topic for a minute this is also of importance to those who study history.
The Revolutionary War's Brandywine Battlefield in Pennsylvania is being threatened due to lack of state funding. The Revolutionary Times battle reenactment has already been cancelled for 2009. Possibilities also include the closing of the Visitor's Center, the closing of Washington's and Lafayette's headquarters, and more. You can help by visiting the Save Brandywine Battlefield website.
With all the issues we face regarding Civil War battlefield preservation we should not turn a blind eye to those whose interest is the American Revolution. Who knows when our favorite battlefield could be next.
