LCWRT Announces 2011 - 2012 Preservation Grant Recipient

The Louisville Civil War Round Table is pleased to announce the recipient of the 2011 - 2012 LCWRT Preservation Grant will be the Battle of Richmond Association. BORA will use the grant to purchase interpretive signage for the Churchill's Draw area in the Madison County Battlefield Park. This is where undetected units of Texas dismounted cavalry, Arkansas infantry and Arkansas artillery under the command of CSA Brig. Gen Thomas J. Churchill  emerged on the right flank of Union Brig.Gen. Mahlon D. Manson's divisions and ended the first phase of the Battle of Richmond at Mount Zion Church on Aug. 30, 1862.  Dr. Paul Rominger will be attending the May Meeting to receive the grant.

 Brig. Gen Thomas J. Churchill, CSA ( 1824 - 1905)
