Name change[edit]

I moved this page from national battlefield for two reasons.

  1. "National Military Park" was the designation of the first such protected area.
  2. I do not think any country besides the U.S. has "military parks" so the name is unique, and thus the page won't be changed to something unwieldy like "U.S. National Battlefield."

"National Battlefield" may seem more common though, so the change does not make perfect sense. Please drop me a line if anyone has a problem with it. — Eoghanacht talk 17:27, 19 September 2005 (UTC)
