Buckland Mills Battlefield

The Civil War Trust has partnered with the Buckland Preservation Society to preserve and protect the Buckland Historic district and the Battle of Buckland Mills. Here the Civil War Trust’s website lists Buckland Preservation Society’s individual directors’ success in preserving 91 acres of land in the Buckland Mills Battlefield. Since that was written, additional land in the Buckland Mills Battlefield has been preserved in perpetuity with support from the Civil War Trust, the Department of Interior National Park Service American Battlefield Protection Program, the Virginia Department of Historic Resources, Prince William and Fauquier Counties.

The Civil War Trust also provides a brief description of the events of the October 19, 1863, Battle of Buckland Mills at this link:
