RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Civil War battlefields in Maryland and Virginia will receive National Park Service grants for preservation efforts.

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources will oversee a $116,000 grant for the South Mountain Battlefield, and the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation will handle a $93,000 grant for the Appomattox Court House battlefield.

The grants are from the Park Service's American Battlefield Protection Program.
