Battery Dantzler Re-Dedication March 25

17 03 2007

Next Sunday, the Chester Station branch of the Sons of Confederate Veterans are holding a ceremony to officially re-dedicate Battery Dantzler Park.  This park which is owned by Chesterfield County and operated by the Chesterfield County Historical Society, was heavily damaged in 2003 when Hurricane Isabel hit the Richmond area.  Thanks to the work of the SCV Chester Station and local Boy Scouts, the park was cleaned up, repaired and new interpretive signs installed.  Battery Dantzler will soon appear on the Virginia Civil War Trails program literature if not already.Battery Dantzler, 1865

The ceremony at 3:00 pm March 25th will feature guest speaker John Quarstein, Director of the Virginia War Museum in Newport News and also in charge of all of Newport News’ historic properties (Lee Hall Mansion, Endview Plantation, Lee Hall Depot and other sites).  Mr. Quarstein is an excellent speaker having just presented a talk on General George B. McClellan at the Powhatan Civil War Round Table.  The Battery Dantzler Ceremony will again take place at 3:00 pm on Sunday, March 25th at Battery Dantzler Park in Chester, VA.  For more information go
