Williamsburg Battlefield Added To List Of Endangered Sites
The Williamsburg Battlefield (historic) made the Preservation
Virginia "most endangered sites list" I wanted to share this with you
ASAP. Such a listing wouldn't have been possible without the actions of
this past summer and the support and encouragement from the round table.
The idea of the list is to bring awareness and interpretation to the
sites and not to shame or insult the developers or land owners. I would
ask that you share this news listed below with the Roundtable. Please
also encourage those that use Facebook to "friend" our site which is
also listed below.
Williamsburg Battlefield Association Book Sale:
Drew Gruber and his wife, Kate, of the Williamsburg Battlefield
Association are conducting a Civil War book sale to raise revenue to
assist in the purchase and preservation of local properties where
fighting occurred during the Battle of Williamsburg on May 4 and 5,
The Civil War books were originally part of a private collection that belonged to a Colonial Williamsburg member who recently passed away. The family is contributing the books to the Williamsburg Battlefield Association to provide an incentive for raising cash for the organization’s preservation efforts. Approximately 200 books are being offered for sale. The titles and prices can be reviewed by clicking here.
The Williamsburg Battlefield Association has taken the lead in the effort to preserve the only area of the Williamsburg Battlefield that remains undeveloped. The current owners are anxious to place these properties on the market. The Association is collaborating with government agencies and preservation organizations to purchase these hallowed grounds. The revenue generation by the sale of this collection of Civil War books will be beneficial toward the goal of preserving these lands. The Williamsburg Civil War Roundtable endorses this book sale and encourages all members and friends to support this cause.
The contact source for the purchase of the Civil War books is: firstname.lastname@example.org
