Military History;Nov2007, Vol. 24 Issue 8, p16
The article reports on the controversies surrounding the plan of natural resource managers at Manassas National Battlefield Park in Northern Virginia to cut timbers in the west end of the park to approximate its appearance during the August 1862 Battle of Second Manassas. Proponents claim the restoration project will lend the battlefield a sense of authenticity, enhancing visitors' experience. But environmentalists bemoan the loss of old-growth hickory-oak forest.
