1. The most important Class A or B battlefields still in existence from the respective campaigns or themes that also are in good condition. These sites have not been studied to determine whether any meet established National Park System suitability and feasibility criteria.

2. These sites already have state parks protecting some of the battlefield (Table 5) except Corydon, which is partly a county park, and Palmeto Ranch, which is partly owned by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

3. Recommendations of major battlefields associated with Shenandoah Valley campaigns may be found in "Study of Civil War Sites in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, pursuant to Public Law 101-628," expected to be submitted by the Secretary of the Interior to Congress in Fiscal Year 1993 (i.e., before October 1, 1993).
