Meeting Our Goals for Monocacy National Battlefield
Our mission at Monocacy National Battlefield is to preserve and protect the landscape, historic structures, archeological sites and monuments that contribute to the national significance of the Battle of Monocacy; to commemorate the Battle of Monocacy; and to provide opportunities for visitors to understand and appreciate the significance of the Battle of Monocacy within the full context of the Civil War and American history.
In order to fulfill this mission, we have developed a set of priorities for ensuring that the cultural and natural landscapes are preserved for today's visitors as well as future generations. We are committed to:
General Management Plan
A draft General Management Plan is available for review at park headquarters upon request.
Government Performance and Results Act
The Government Performance and Results Act provides accountability to the American public for the care and stewardship of our national treasures. Managers must report how they utilize their resources toward the preservation of the parks.
Each year superintendents prepare a public statement of their park's annual budget and its separation into various expenditure categories for public review.
