Something I thought we’d never see has happened! The 44 acre Wilson tract, the triangular parcel of land south of the Cornfield and north of the Visitor’s Center, has been purchased by Civil War Trust. SHAF has contributed several thousand dollars to this effort, and now we have been asked to help restore the property. This will entail removing the barn, cutting out non-historic tree lines and replanting the eastern portion in trees. We will be posting notices when all this will take place as we will need your help, both physically and financially. This tract will eventually be acquired by the National Park Service, but our challenge is to restore it prior to that transfer.
