      American Battlefield Protection Program 2010 Grant Awards

      The American Battlefield Protection Program announces the awarding of 25 grants
      totaling $1,249,973 to assist in the preservation and protection of America's
      significant battlefield lands. The funds will support a variety of projects at
      battle sites in 17 states or territories.

      This year's grants provide funding for projects at endangered battlefields from
      the Revolutionary War, War of 1812, Mexican-American War, Civil War, World War
      II, and various Indian Wars. Funded projects include archeology, mapping,
      cultural resource survey work, documentation, planning, education, and
      interpretation.

      The American Battlefield Protection Program funds projects conducted by federal,
      state, local, and tribal governments, nonprofit organizations, and educational
      institutions. The ABPP's mission is to safeguard and preserve significant
      American battlefield lands for present and future generations as symbols of
      individual sacrifice and national heritage. Since 1990, the ABPP and its
      partners have helped to protect and enhance more than 100 battlefields by
      co-sponsoring 429 projects in 42 states and territories.

      Brief descriptions of each grant project follow, listed by grant recipient.
      (Note: states/territories are location of grant project, not of grant
      recipient.)



      City of Burlington, Community and Economic Development Office
      Vermont
      $45,000
      During Burlington's engagement, the British were repelled and Thomas McDonough's
      Fleet moored below the Burlington Battery. This project will delineate
      Burlington's War of 1812 resources and develop an archeological management plan
      for Burlington Battlefield. Field techniques of archeology and GIS mapping were
      used during the completion of a previous ABPP grant project. This plan will
      assist the community to preserve and protect the battle remains discovered by
      that work.
