Groups join forces to raise funds for battlefield


WINCHESTER (AP) -- Two groups are partnering to raise money to restore part of a Civil War battlefield in Frederick County.

The Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation and Ahyayha.com announced the fundraising effort Monday. They plan to raise $32,000 to restore the 30-acre Middle Field before the 150th anniversary of the Sept. 19, 1864, Third Battle of Winchester.

The Middle Field is part of the 575-acre Third Winchester battlefield, which the foundation plans to restore and interpret over the next two years.

The foundation says the Middle Field will be restored to its appearance in 1864. Thirty acres of non-native shrubs will be removed and the property will be converted to a forest meadow. Passive walking trails, historic fences and interpretive signage also are planned.

Individuals can contribute to the project through Ahyayha.com's website.
