    Leesburg donates 108 trees to Civil War nonprofit

    The Town of Leesburg will geotag 108 newly planted trees as part of the Journey Through Hallowed Ground Partnership's Living Legacy Project. The project commemorates the Civil War Sesquicentennial by planting or dedicating one tree for each of the 620,000 soldiers who died.

    The trees will be part of the new landscaping plan on Leesburg's South King Street. Phase One of the project, from Governors Drive to Greenway Drive, will be complete in the coming weeks. Phase Two will begin in 2014.

    Living Legacy Project trees will eventually stretch along the Journey Through Hallowed Ground National Scenic Byway, a 180 mile stretch from Gettysburg, PA to Charlottesville. Leesburg is on the byway, near the center of the stretch.
