     CULPEPER, Va. (AP) - An interpretive center with trails and signs has been installed at the Kelly's Ford Battlefield.
 
     The Civil War Trust partnered with the landowners and Culpeper-based businesses to establish the center.
 
     The Culpeper Star-Exponent reports that the center was dedicated Sunday on the 150th anniversary of the battle.
 
     The trust acquired an easement on a 964-acre farm owned by the Woodward family in November 2012. Brothers Scott Woodward and Sam Woodward have agreed to maintain and manage the interpretive center.
 
     The National Park Service says the Battle of Kelly's Ford was the first cavalry fight of any appreciable size east of the Mississippi River.
