    11. National Park System: American Battlefield Protection

    Working under the aegis of the National Park Service's Heritage
    Preservation program, the goals of the American Battlefield
    Protection Program are "to protect battlefields and sites
    associated with armed conflicts that influenced the course of
    our history" and "to raise awareness of the importance of
    preserving battlefields." To that end, the NPS developed this
    site which collects a host of information about historically
    significant battlefields ranging from the Revolutionary War to
    the Civil War. Persons looking to learn more about ongoing and
    current developments in the field will want to be sure to read
    the group's publication, "Battlefield News," which is available
    here for the years 1998 to 2002. As might be expected, the
    online publications area is quite strong. Here visitors can read
    publications that tell about the importance of protecting these
    sites, along with various studies that have detailed the
    existing conditions of battlegrounds such as those in the
    Shenandoah Valley. [KMG]
