Civil War soldier spit here

Wal-Mart has been trying to build a store near the Wilderness battlefield for years.
The county government has approved, but lawsuits continue to be filed.
Jerry looks on and wonders.
If the court eventually rules in the plaintiffs' favor, it will have essentially written off development in any part of the commonwealth, since Civil War troops prepared for battle, marched, and died of their injuries throughout - including here on my property in remote Bland County.
You people need to regain your senses. Historical preservation is one thing. Insane laws (and court rulings) restricting growth so as to preserve a bunch of bushes and weeds is another. It's borderline insanity.
