      NPS Releases Report to Congress on Preservation of Revolutionary War and
      War of 1812 Sites
      The NPS has released the �Report to Congress on the Historic Preservation
      of Revolutionary War and War of 1812 Sites in the United States� to the
      public. In order to determine the significance of the sites and to asses
      long and short term threats to their integrity, Congress passed The
      Revolutionary War and War of 1812 Historic Preservation Study Act of 1996
      (P.L. 104-333, Section 603; 16 USC Ia-5 Notes) which mandated the
      preparation of the report.

      �This comprehensive study is an outstanding achievement and will help
      assure the protection of the many important Revolutionary War and War of
      1812 areas nationwide,� said Mary A. Bomar, NPS Director. �I am proud that
      the National Park Service produced this landmark study, and that we
      preserve and protect many of the areas highlighted in the report.�

      The report is perhaps the broadest Federal effort ever undertaken to
      determine the status of Revolutionary War and War of 1812 resources. Years
      of study were successful in identifying the sites of almost 3,000 events
      associated with the two wars, including 60 sites within the National Park
      System.

      The �Report to Congress on the Historic Preservation of Revolutionary War
      and War of 1812 Sites in the United States� is available by accessing the
      following link at: www.nps.gov/history/hps/abpp/Rev1812Study.htm.

      The NPS has also developed a web site to highlight many of the sites
      preserved by the NPS, State and local governments, and public and private
      entities at nps.gov/pub_aff/rev1812/intro.htm.
