Historians Against Wal-Mart

The battle continues over a proposed Wal-Mart, which will be placed on the Wilderness Battlefield just off the intersection of routes 20 and 3.  Awhile back I was asked by the Civil War Preservation Trust to endorse a letter to be sent to the CEO of the company.  Click here to read the letter and here to see who else signed it.  It’s an impressive list that I don’t think will make a damn bit of difference to the suits in charge.   [Note: both are pdf files.]

We lost ‘lovejoy Station battlefield’ south of Atlanta to a Wal-Mart developer. The many historic preservation groups that fought to stop Wan-mart didn’t have any luck up against both the developer and Wal-mart. You might think it will not make a difference fighting it but you never know.

Correction, part of “lovejoy’s Station Battlefield ‘ was lost to a developer. Nash Farm over in Henry County has been keep.
