(This amendment provides additional first year general fund support for the Civil War Historic Site Preservation Fund for grants to be made to private non-profit organizations for the preservation of historic battlefields. Grants made from the fund are matched by federal and other private funds on at least a dollar for dollar basis and grants may be used for either fee simple purchase of historic battlefields or protective interests in such land. The amendment reflects continuing interest in historic battlefields due to the commemoration of the sesquicentennial of the Civil War and its impact on Virginia and the United States.)
