"Evil" Walmart tries to build near a battlefield

McDonald's? Yes
Mini-malls? Yes
Walmart? NO
The Newsleader(It is one word on web page) lead line on May 1 was... A judge kept alive Friday the fight to block a Walmart Supercenter near an endangered Civil War site where Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant first met on the field of battle.
The NewsVirginian had an Ap story That a group wants to add Walmart to a lawsuit in regard to the Wilderness Battlefield.
They want to put a Walmart Superstore in Locust Grove on Rt.3. There are a number of developments and mini-malls there. There is a McDonald's there.It would be on the periphery of the battlefield.
The Wilderness Battlefield is over on Rt.20. Even by the Civil War Preservation Trust's own maps, it is outside the battlefields.It is even outside the Union movements that evening.
Preserve the Union Latrines ! !
I have written about this before.
