Despite a series of setbacks, design work has finally begun on a trail that will connect a series of Civil War landmarks in Lynchburg, Virginia.

The Lynchburg News and Advance reports that county planners have begun planning the layout of the Appomattox Heritage and Recreational Trail, which will link the Appomattox Court House National Historical Park to surrounding landmarks. These will include the Museum of Confederacy site and the battlefield of Appomattox Station.

The launch of the project comes at a historical time, as April 8 marks the 145th anniversary of surrender at Appomattox, according to the park's website.

Although the county hired Land Planning and Design Associates of Charlottesville to engineer the trail last fall, their efforts were stalled due to funding issues. Since then, the project has received approximately $273,000 in federal grants to initiate construction.

However, county officials say that funding is still needed before these efforts can be fully launched.

"We have to have all the money in hand before we start building," county planner Johnnie Roark told the news source.
