What would you think if I told you that you could help save 782 acres of hallowed ground at the Brandy Station battlefield in Virginia for just $85.68 per acre? In a world where CWPT often must pay about $5,000 - $10,000 or more per acre of hallowed ground I’ve got to tell you that a price of $85.68 per acre gets your attention!
The two parcels that make up this new preservation efforts are highly significant to the Battle of Brandy Station. The northernmost tract is where Gen. John Buford’s Federal cavalry fought with Rooney Lee’s Confederate troopers. The southern parcel includes land where Federal cavalry under Col. Thomas Devin repeatedly clashed with Confederates led by General Wade Hampton. As historian Bud Hall puts it, “there is no piece of Piedmont plain in Culpeper County that witnessed more infantry and cavalry action than this property.”
