  1. Thanks for posting this; very enjoyable, and it answers some of the questions I had about how they chose their focus, what made it into the script and what had to be left out, etc.

    • I thought it was interesting to hear that Virginia Governor McDonnell thought that filming in Richmond might help to heal old wounds. Overall it was very interesting.

      • Yep; seems like even McDonnell has learned that actions have consequences….wasn’t he the one that restored Confederate Memorial Day as a state holiday a couple of years back?

Now that you've read the post, share your thoughts.
