It is not as if Kettle Creek Battleground will soon disappear. Land generally does not vanish unless an ocean swallows it or developers cement over it. It is unlikely an ocean will rise high enough to swallow the site where a militia force of Patriots defeated and scattered a Loyalist militia force on Valentine’s Day, 1779, outside Washington, Ga., nor will commercial development threaten the backwoods battlefield in the near future. However, like any battleground that defines American heritage, we must recognize its worth and maintain its grounds.
