Money Being Raised To Pay For 188 Acres Of Land At Bentonville Battlefield

The Civil War Preservation Trust is trying to raise money to purchase an additional 188 acres at the Bentonville Battlefield in southern Johnston County . The trust needs to raise $80,000 to get a $720,000 matching grant from the state and federal government to finish paying for the property. Last year, the trust was able to secure 300 acres of land at Bentonville. Altogether, the battlefield site in March 1865 covered 6,000 acres.
