Here is a sad Williamsburg fact: "only three lonely acres of land have been purposely saved as a remembrance to the battle in the 142 years since it was fought."
This is a moving letter.
All is not lost. Developed battlefield land remains in the private sector and can be bought back as said developments grow old and shabby and then fail. What is now or will be lost at Williamsburg are the unique string of earthen fortifications on the Warwick Line, bulldozed into oblivion.
