Not so much an article for preservation, but more on the subject of modification to a battlefield. Similar arguments were made at Antietam a few years ago when new monuments were proposed. Since most markers and monuments are post-war I am not sure what the issue is in constructing new ones, but I wonder if a statue of limitations exists on whether new monuments can be erected? I don't know of any, but the topic is generating enough discussion to make National newspapers.
