Save Chancellorsville Battlefield

I respectfully call upon the Spotsylvania County Board of Supervisors to reject the request for rezoning of the Mullins Farm on Chancellorsville Battlefield. As you well know, this 790-acre tract of land played an integral part in the epic battle. I believe the traffic and sprawl that this proposed development would generate will significantly degrade if not destroy the integrity of the existing battlefield. As Civil War heritage tourism brings millions of dollars annually to Spotsylvania County, I would counsel you to closely guard the resource you currently have. The economic well being of the citizens of your county may hinge on your decision. Chancellorsville Battlefield is truly a national treasure. It belongs to all Americans, and I entreat you, as a fellow American, to keep this in mind as you deliberate its future. Thank you.
