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.]

"In this stunning and well-researched book, Kevin Levin catches the new waves of the study of memory, black soldiers, and the darker underside of the Civil War as well as anyone has... Levin is both superb scholar and public historian, showing us a piece of the real war that does now get into the books, as well as into site interpretation."
