“The site of the battle is preserved as the Bentonville Battleground State Historic Site, which was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1996. The park, founded in 1965, includes 130 acres (0.53 km2) of the battlefield and runs a visitor’s center adjacent to the restored Harper House, which served as a hospital for Union soldiers during the battle. The Bentonville Battlefield Historical Association, the Civil War Trust (a division of the American Battlefield Trust) also own portions of the battlefield not included in the state park, including 1,770 acres (7.2 km2) by the Trust alone.The Trust and its partners, including the historical association, have acquired and preserved a total of 1,861 acres (7.53 km2) of the battlefield in more than 50 separate acquisitions since 1990.”
The tree photo was taken on March 21st of 2017 in front of the Harper House. Spring is just around the corner, so leaves had not started to bud yet.
