LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- U.S. Rep. Harold `'Hal" Rogers has reintroduced legislation to preserve a Civil War site in southern Kentucky.

The bill seeks to recognize the Mill Springs Battlefield site in Pulaski and Wayne counties. The battle on Jan. 19, 1862, was the second largest in Kentucky. The fight resulted in a Union victory and blazed a trail for Union troops to move from Kentucky into Tennessee.
