Archeological survey Nov. 28 to identify potential Civil War era graves at Bristoe Station

Prince William County Department of Public Works’ Historic Preservation Division will be conducting an archaeological survey to identify a possible Civil War era military cemetery at the Bristoe Station Battlefield Park.  The public is invited to the park on Wednesday, Nov. 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to watch the survey work and talk with professional archaeologists from Wetland Studies and Solutions.  Public Works staff will also be available to provide information about the battlefield and the various cemeteries in the Bristow region. 

Recently, Prince William County was awarded a $20,000 Certified Local Government Grant by the Virginia Department of Historic Resources.  The grant will fund the archaeological survey and research to help positively identify a possible burial ground associated with the battles and camps here in the Bristow area. 

Bristoe Station Battlefield Heritage Park includes 133 acres of fields and woodlands.  The Park interprets two Civil War battles and its natural resources.  Prince William County Historic Preservation owns and operates the Park.
