U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander joined the Civil War Preservation Trust (CWPT) today at historic Rippavilla Plantation to announce a fundraising campaign to protect 84 key acres of the Spring Hill Battlefield. CWPT has entered into an agreement to purchase a long-sought portion of this Maury County battlefield — the scene of a dramatic encounter between Union and Confederate forces in November 29, 1864 — from General Motors, LLC, (GM), and has secured a significant federal matching grant to facilitate the transaction.
