April is “Civil War in Virginia Month”
Well, at least that is what Governor McDonnell announced at a recent conference sponsored by the Virginia Sesquicentennial Commission. With April right around the corner, however, we have yet to see a proclamation outlining the scope of the commemoration. Perhaps the governor’s advisers are studying a recent Harris Poll on how Americans identify with this history. Whatever is announced, I trust it will be as thoughtful as this speech.
