Just announced by the Civil War Trust;

Preservation community pleased with decision by retail giant to drop
plans to build a supercenter within historic boundaries of Wilderness
battlefield

(Orange, Va.) - In an unexpected development, Walmart announced
this morning that it has abandoned plans to pursue a special use
permit previously awarded to the retail giant for construction of a
supercenter on the Wilderness Battlefield. The decision came as
the trial in a legal challenge seeking to overturn the special use
permit was scheduled to begin in Orange County circuit court.

"We are pleased with Walmart's decision to abandon plans
to build a supercenter on the Wilderness battlefield," remarked
James Lighthizer, president of the Civil War Trust. "We
have long believed that Walmart would ultimately recognize that it is
in the best interests of all concerned to move their intended store
away from the battlefield. We applaud Walmart officials for
putting the interests of historic preservation first. Sam Walton
would be proud of this decision."

Keep those cards and letters coming. In areas where this is happening, letters to local governments do help, even from out of the local area. Tourism is important to many areas.
