HAMPTON — John Culpepper, chair of the Civil War Commission, said one of the top items on the agenda at a weekend meeting at the Nash Farm Battlefield is improving the group’s website.
The Georgia Civil War Commission will hold its quarterly meeting Saturday, starting at 1 p.m. It will be at the Nash Farm Battlefield, 100 Babbs Mill Road, Hampton.
Culpepper said the group is planning for a special website to handle what the group expects will be worldwide interest in the 150-year observances of the Civil War.
“We are trying to enhance the website for all the events happening,” said Culpepper. He said there are some 450 sites in Georgia important to the Civil War.
In addition, Culpepper said new officers will be elected, and there will be discussion of the group’s “interpretive” Civil War 150th Sign Project.
The Georgia Civil War Commission was created by the 1993 Georgia General Assembly. Its mandate, as spelled out in Senate Resolution 21, is “to coordinate planning, preservation, and promotion of structures, buildings, sites, and battlefields associated with this significant period of our common heritage.”
Nash Farm Battlefield is the recognized as the last major calvary engagement during the Atlanta Campaign, said Culpepper.
