WASHINGTON, D.C, -- Congressman Jody Hice (R-GA), a member of the House Natural Resources Committee, took to the House Floor last week to speak on behalf of his legislation, H.R. 306, the Kettle Creek Battlefield Study Act, which passed that evening.

“Congress has made significant strides in preserving the history of America’s brutal Civil War, and rightfully so. Unfortunately, we have not done the same with many Revolutionary War battlefields and these hallowed grounds of our Nation’s founding moments are slowly disappearing with time,” said Congressman Hice.

“This legislation is a critical step forward in preserving the battlefield at Kettle Creek – one that has tremendous local support in the community. I strongly believe that the storied grounds of what Colonel Pickens described as the most significant victory of the Southern Campaign, and a place where a young African American Patriot earned his freedom 86 years prior to the end of slavery, is more than significant enough to preserve for future generations.

“I look forward to Kettle Creek being studied for inclusion in the park system, and I urge my colleagues to support this piece of history.”

Help with a Federal Agency

One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help people with federal problems. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a person’s behalf to answer questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Please know that I cannot force an agency to act in favor of a constituent. However, I can help communicate the circumstances and request that they take appropriate actions to assist you.
