Spring 2011
Members of the newly formed "Friends of Laurel Hill Battlefield;" (Sis McLean, Larry Corley, Hunter Lesser and Lynne Snyder) met recently to proclaim their continuing interest in preserving, sponsoring and protecting this website. It had lapsed from its previous management and the "Friends..." were formed with a view to both supporting the Battlefield itself and to maintaining Laurel Hill's presence on the internet. This site presents photos and articles of history for Laurel Hill Battlefield submitted by these dedicated people and others over a period of years. You can contact the "Friends..." via the information below. We are ready to post almost any pictures or stories to this site which would serve to promote or defend the ongoing preservation of the historic ground at Laurel Hill. (All contributions will be publicly acknowledged and credited!)
