Here's a couple of links to a success story in my home town of Jacksonville. A combined effort of the City of Jacksonville and members of my unit were successful in saving this gem of a site where earthworks still exist and are scheduled to be restored as well as a circa 189X homestead. I was very pleased to be there for the grand opening and my son's Venture Scout unit has "adopted" this as one of the places they plan on doing many conservation projects. Eventually it will be home to the Florida Civil War Museum.

Good work.
Thanks, but the credit really goes to a couple of folks in my unit as I really had little to do with the saving of the property other than being a member of the 8th FL. I ust thought it would be good to show what can happen when we collectively try to save some of our history.
