I was very pleased this morning to read on Tim Ware's blog that the South Mountain battlefields have been added to the National Register of Historic Places, encompassing two historic districts, one at Crampton's Gap near Burkittsville, and the other including both Fox's and Turner's Gaps and covering a significant area. Many thanks go out to those who helped make this happen; your efforts are much appreciated.
It has been a good year thus far for matters of Civil War preservation.
I do hope it continues. . .
