Battle of Baton Rouge
ARC crews are cleaning asbestos from the former Greenwell Springs Resort used as a Confederate HQ prior to the battle of Baton Rouge, LA in 1862. After the battle, the resort was used as a hospital. Both Union and Confederate soldiers were buried in unmarked graves there. A hospital was built in the 1940s along with other buildings on the 164-acre site.
