301 Acres Preserved at Georgia Battlefield!
I have wonderful news to share. A few months ago, we called on our members to help preserve 301 acres at Rocky Face Ridge battlefield, in Georgia. The land which saw the critical opening days of the Atlanta campaign boasts pristine earthworks, and also saw fighting during the February 1864 Battle of Dalton.
After an enthusiastic response from members like you, today we can celebrate victory! The site which features a continuous entrenchment more than 2,000 feet long adds to the lands already preserved by the Trust at Rocky Face Ridge, totaling an incredible 926 acres saved.
I am honored to celebrate this important victory with you. This success is yet another testament to the loyalty and commitment of our members, and our continued achievements in the Western Theater are due entirely to you. Together, we are doing great work to preserve battlefield land fundamental to our nation’s history.
