"Fort Wool, to Hampton History Museum for           300,000    0".

(This amendment provides $300,000 the first year from the general fund to the Hampton History Museum for Fort Wool. The requested funds would be used for the restoration of Fort Wool's stone, brick, and granite gun emplacements and observation tower. The repair of Fort Wool's historic features is necessary so that the public can learn about Fort Wool's participation in the 1862 Peninsula Campaign. Interpretation will be achieved via a guided tour featuring signs and a small museum will be created within a re-constructed barrack.)
