Sen. Landrieu Announces $41K to Maintain Mansfield Civil War Battlefield

January 22, 2013

WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Mary L. Landrieu, D-La., today announced a $41,000 National Park Service Civil War Battlefield Land Acquisition Grant awarded to the Louisiana Office of State Parks for the preservation of the Mansfield Battlefield in Mansfield, La. The National Park Service's American Battlefield Protection Program (ABPP) provided the grant, which helps states and local communities acquire and preserve threatened Civil War battlefield land.

"The Mansfield Battlefield is an important part of our state and nation's history, one that is worth preserving," Sen. Landrieu said. "I am proud of today's funding which will help ensure that this site and the history surrounding it is maintained and not lost to future generations."

The funds were made available under the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2012, which appropriated $8.9 million for the Civil War battlefield land acquisition grants program. Sen. Landrieu voted in favor of this funding that makes today's grant possible.
