Mike Stevens, the president of the Central Virginia Battlefields Trust–a legitimate battlefield preservation group that has done some fabulous work in the Fredericksburg area–wrote:
Surely no one who understands what this ground means to us and to our country would allow its destruction and desecration without standing up and saying, “No!”
Surely any battlefield preservation organization with its priorities straight would do the same.
It appears that the only positive thing stemming from this unfortunate incident is to show how a preservation organization should NOT act.
That sums it all up quite succinctly and quite well. Shame on you, Joe McKinney, and shame on all of the members of the BSF board that voted for the worst appeasement since Neville Chamberlain at Munich.Scridb filter
