Camp Nelson Civil War Heritage Park could become national park

U.S. Rep. Andy Barr, R-Lexington, has introduced a bill that would authorize the Department of Interior to conduct a study of whether to bring Camp Nelson Civil War Heritage Park into the National Park System. The heritage park tells the story of black soldiers who were recruited and trained to fight for the Union. The park, which is adjacent to Camp Nelson National Cemetery, is off U.S. 27 about six miles south of Nicholasville.
