I wonder if there's a corollary here? I note that South Carolina has close to zero acres saved. Even New Mexico saved more. Land don't get preserved simply because CWPT considers it important. The state in which the ground is located must ultimately agree and apply a little weight in that direction. I was particularly impressed with Perryville. The NPS isn't involved, it's a state project, and it ranks in my mind well up in the hierachy of aggressively preserved battlefields. I can't imagine that it pays for itself, but it keeps on improving.
