The National Park Service recently announced it will contribute about $2 million to help protect 229 acres of Virginia battlefields threatened by development, including Civil War sites in Fauquier and Louisa counties.

The Park Service’s American Battlefield Protection Program is providing $240,306 toward the purchase of a .85-acre parcel at the Second Battle of Rappahannock Station battlefield in Fauquier and $47,751 to help buy a 12.5-acre site at Trevilian Station battlefield on U.S. 33 in Louisa.
