Wal-Mart at War

In Virginia, Wal-Mart has won the right to build a store close by the site of the Battle of the Wilderness, one of the top ten battles with the most casualties in the Civil War. Writes the Washington Post:

Wal-Mart and its supporters dismiss ... opposition as exaggerated, because the store would not sit directly on parkland or on what is known as the core battlefield, where the most intense fighting took place. Instead, the site is in what was the Union rear.
