Let's Save Mount Defiance

Save Mount Defiance
Even well-read Civil War buffs may have only a vague notion of the 1863 battles of Aldie, Middleburg, and Upperville. But did you know that the 1,500 combined casualties incurred at these three interconnected battles are more than what was suffered at the Battle of Brandy Station, the largest cavalry battle of the Civil War?
Now we have the chance to save 5 key acres associated with the beginning of the 1863 Gettysburg Campaign. This Mount Defiance tract, part of the Middleburg Battlefield, will preserve the key position where troopers from Maine, New York, and Pennsylvania fought Stuart's forces from North Carolina and Virginia on June 19, 1863.
