Study: Kentucky’s Civil War battlefield sites bring significant benefits, but lack steady funding

The Kentucky Civil War Sites Association has released its “Kentucky Battlefield Study” that illustrates the economic and tourism benefits of Kentucky’s Civil War and Revolutionary War battlefields as well as war-related historic sites have on state and local economies. And Perryville Battlefield State Historic Site is a prime example of how “battlefield tourism” has a substantial impact on this area.

Joni House, director of Perryville Battlefield and KCWSA president, said the study is based on results from the 2017 Visitor Survey, funded by a grant from the American Battlefield Protection Program (ABPP) of the National Park Service.
