Key Tarleton Site Saved in Va.

Filed under: Early America,Wars — John Maass @ 2:41 pm

One of the key sites on Banastre Tarleton’s 1781 Charlottesville Raid is Castle Hill, on Rt. 231 in Albemarle County near Cismont.   Good news–the current owners worked with the Nature Conservancy and recently donated a conservation easement to the Conservancy, ensuring that development will be permanently restricted on the 1,203-acre farm.
