The Mills Springs Battlefield Park is expanding by nearly 100 acres.
The acreage makes up two properties that are known locally as the Landmark Ventures tract and Gladstone-Muse tract. They will be added to the 450 acres currently protected in the park.
The protection of the two tracts of land was the result of a national fundraising effort initiated by the Civil War Trust, one which brought in approximately $832,000.
