Tomorrow afternoon, June 1, at 1:30 p.m., a land transfer ceremony will take place at the Perryville Battlefield in Perryville, Kentucky. The Civil War Preservation Trust (CWPT) recently obtained 54 acres to be included with the Perryville Battlefield State Historic Site. Those slated to attend include the Kentucky Tourism, Arts and Heritage Secretary Marcheta Sparrow, as well as other Commonwealth officials and preservation leaders. A tour of the battlefield and a reception will follow.
This is a great achievement for the CWPT and for anyone who is interested in preserving hallowed Civil War battlefields. Please check out the following link for further information and directions.
