Passed House amended (10/12/1999)

Amends Federal law to remove the condition under which certain lands (on which occurred, during the Battle of the Wilderness, Longstreet's Flank Attack) could be added to the Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania County Battlefields Memorial National Military Park (Wilderness Battlefield), Virginia only by donation to the Secretary of the Interior (thus allowing the Secretary to acquire it by purchase or exchange). Requires one specified portion of land, however, to be acquired by donation only, and three other specified parcels to be acquired not only by donation but by purchase from willing sellers, or exchange.
