Art,

In this case I tend to agree with you - it may be time to give CWPT the benefit of the doubt. If everything said in their response to you is true, and historians and others were consulted, then I have to assume that there was no critical land (earthworks, trenches, etc.) damaged. Also hearing that no witness trees were affected goes far in making me feel better. I think the size of the track may be excessive, but I'll reserve final judgement until I see some pics.

What I think a lot of Civil War enthusiasts forget is that local cooperation is vital to acquisition of Civil War land. Sometimes compromise demands that locals receive something in return, in this case a recreational trail. I also think you'll see more of this sort of thing as Franklin's projects continue to develop. Thanks for your post...

(I'd also add that their quickness in replying to both of us has to be commended)
