I agree with what has been said about inadvertent bias against Western Theatre battlefields when in comes to preservation. Murfreesboro battlefield is on the brink of total destruction, yet it is ignored, while Gettysburg is given copious amounts of attention over a plan to build a casino miles from the battlefield there. Also, the battlefields at Thompson's Station and Spring Hill are under enormous pressure as suburban development from Nashville creeps south along Highway 31 and I-65, but not much is heard about it. Gettysburg battlefield, in my opinion, is in great shape, especially when compared to some other battlefields which might still be saved if prompt action is taken to do so. Just my five cents.
Would you also agree that the folks in Murfreesboro are more responsible as to what's happened there than anyone else on the planet?
