Photographer's comments:
     Battlefield Farm is named for the Civil War Battle of Richmond, which occured August 29-30, 1862, at and around this location.
     It appears that charolais beef cattle are raised (or once were raised) on the farm.  Much of Battlefield Farm has been subdivided for new houses and a golf course.

.
     Battlefield Farm is adjacent to the Bluegrass Army Depot, a 15,000-acre U.S. government facility where thousands of World War II-era nerve gas rockets and other chemical weapons are stored.  The second link below has more information.
