To Preserve The Battlefield As The Veterans Consecrated It

Friends of the Petersburg Battlefield

Fort Hays

Here is the core of the letter from Mitch Bowman, Executive Director of Virginia Civil War Trails to the Friends of the Petersburg Battlefield in reference to the Fort Hays project.

"We have received $2,600 from the Col. James D. Brady Camp, 63 SUVCW and will now be able to complete the Fort Hays interpretive marker on Flank Road."

Because of that good news and circumstance ,TWBTS voted to have the Friends of the Petersburg Battlefield donate the $1,010. collected to Virginia Civil War Trails Organization for their best use.
