VIRGINIA REMEMBERS THE CIVIL WAR

Yes, I know—-you rebels like to call it the War of Northern Aggression, but we Yankees have a rule we like to call,

"You Win It, You Name It."

Virginia has a very impressive website where you can check on statewide events commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. And why not—-more fighting took place there than in any other state:

NOTE 1: It’s no great secret why so much fighting took place in the Old Dominion—-Richmond and Washington, DC are only about 100 miles apart as the crow flies. Why you rebels decided to situate your capital so close to your enemy’s capital, I’ll never know…

NOTE 2: Virginia had the most fighting, followed closely by Tennessee and-- yes, wait for it-- Missouri!
