Oatlands Historic House and Gardens, where last year the Journey lauched its vast Sesquicentennial commemoration to plant the Rt. 15 corridor with 620,000 trees as a living memorial to those who fell on both sides during the Civil War, is partnering with Journey to plant more than 400 trees at the 360-acre estate south of Leesburg.
