538Re: [TalkAntietam] Harpers Ferry on endangered list
- Feb 27, 2002Andy,
Don't get too worked up about the ranking. It is not a scientific or even an
objective process. It is based on the level of threat, but also on a lot of
other factors. Notice its regional balance? Also depends on how "sexy"
(their words, not mine) the battlefield is, NPS agenda, etc. It is sort of a
cynical fund-raising technique, but it does not mean that these battlefields
do not need help, they do.
