    good story, now if we could just get them to call the war by the correct name.... the war against yankee aggression... there was NO civil war...

    :lol: In the paper? Ain't gonna happen...over a glass of whiskey...well...that's a different story.

    A lot of people don't understand why many Virginians are STILL so proud of their Southern Heritage...or still so passionate about the war. Hell, many people wonder why Virginians even consider Virginia part of The South.

    I always knew that VA played a huge role in the war. I always knew that no matter where I was in the state I could find historical markers...but what I didn't recognize was the scale of things. I thought this was common...I figured most of the states in The South (as well as a few in the North) were littered with battlegrounds. Everywhere I turn there is another battleground. I didn't realize that more major battles were fought here than any other state.
