Walmart donates Civil War acres to VA

Fifty battlefield acres have been donated to the state by Walmart, concluding a once-contentious fight over a store the retail giant had proposed near the Wilderness Battlefield.

WalMart does the right thing, albeit under tremendous popular pressure, and years after doing the right thing should’ve been done. Still, a victory for the Civil War Trust and history buffs everywhere.
