Leading the Preservation Charge

Andrew Druart.

If you think that all of the boy heros of the Civil War were at the Battle of New Market, you haven't met Andrew Druart.

Andrew visited the park today and came along on my tour.  He's a leading light in the battlefield preservation movement raising nearly seven thousand dollars on the website that he started for other kids interested in the Civil War.  He's a great kid and a delight to talk with.

After an afternoon with Andrew, I think that the future of our battlefields is in very good hands.
