The Bulltown Historical Area contains an original battlefield site (which includes a Federal fort area with original trenches) under Federal law protection. This was the site of the Battle of Bulltown which occurred on October 13, 1863 and the Federal occupation which occurred from 1861-1865. The property is on the Burnsville Lake project which is under the authority and control of the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers (part of the Huntington District and unique in the Corps project system). This is “Hallowed Ground” (in the same vein as National Park Service battlefield sites such as Chickamauga and Gettysburg), and it is all our responsibility to preserve and protect it for posterity. We are all charged with providing all participants and visitors with a positive, safe, learning experience while keeping historic accuracy in-mind. We are all also charged with “Keeping Green” and “Honoring with Dignity” the memory of all the soldiers who fought here, those soldiers who were here during the duration of the fort’s occupation (1861-1865), and of all the civilians (especially the Cunningham family whose farm was occupied) who were affected.
