The Wilderness and the WalMart
Just a quick note to say that today a judge in Orange County VA is hearing arguments about whether or not to take the issue of the proposed battlefield-sited WalMart to court.
Please note that although WalMart and supporters say it’s “not on the battlefield,” they mean the battlefield as currently preserved by the Park Service, etc. The site where the WalMart would be built was part of the active battle landscape in 1864.
