Thank you for the Feb. 9 coverage of the Mitchelville Preservation Project's first strategic planning session. We appreciate your assigning Tom Barton to attend the event. The clarity with which he writes is astounding.
Furthermore, the visuals that accompanied the article will go a long way in keeping this important initiative in the public eye, and in the hearts of those near and far who have "caught the vision" of re-creating on Hilton Head Island the historic town of Mitchelville.
An ambitious project, such as the Historic Mitchelville Freedom Park, will require extensive collaboration and partnerships with many sectors -- public and private.
So, thanks again, for your interest and support of this important, nationally significant, historic narrative that only can be told from the shores of Hilton Head Island.
