The letter-writing continues; it's about Franklin giving up a Country Club to create a battlefield park. Painter Don Troiani weighed in as an aye; the nayes respond:
The preservationists can better spend their money on property that was actually part of the battlefield. [...] We do not want taxpayers’ money used for this purpose and will continue to use our freedom to express our opinions.
The CWPT is implicated in this controversy, as well:
The Web site for the Civil War Preservation Trust does not show this land as a part of the battlefield.
Which is to say, CWPT is being used to justify an anti-preservation position.
