Sometimes it feels as if our history is being lost everywhere, but we have an amazing opportunity to save part of it – a 52-acre tract that is some of the most fought-over ground on the New Market battlefield, including the spot where the VMI Cadet battery helped to turn back more than 1,000 Union horseman during the climax of the fighting!

What if the Town of New Market revised their Residential Growth Comprehensive Plan to exclude the battle site? Therein lies the problem - politicians listening to money talking.
