Battlefield recounts Peter Svensons experiences building a farmhouse on a forty-acre site near Harrisonburg, Virginia, which 125 years before had been the site of a Civil War battle: the 1862 Battle of Cross Keys, in which Confederate forces stopped a Union advance and provided Stonewall Jackson with an important victory in his guerrilla campaign in the Shenandoah Valley.
