Hello,

I just signed the petition, “Don’t turn a famous Revolutionary War site into an IHOP restaurant.” I think this is important. Will you sign it too?
Here’s the link:

https://www.change.org/p/don-t-turn-a-fa...=667511003

Thanks,
Ron

Hope this petition helps, Ron, but I've seen too many of these situations go bad, many in my own neck of the woods. Sadly, big money normally wins out in the end. I think this is atrocious, for the same reason we wouldn't want something built on top of a cemetery our loved one's were buried in. Some things deserve to be preserved. Added my sig to the list Happy

So they want to stop a 70 acre development to preserve a half acre cemetary and an old crumbling wall because of the POSSIBILITY there may be some artifacts that weren't discovered after the first analysis. Seems to me they should do another quick analysis and then stop denying the land owners their rights if there's nothing discovered. If some thing is discovered they need to remove the artifacts or purchase the land for fair market value. Otherwise , they should get the hell out of the way and let the people do what they want with their own land. They have already agreed to preserve the tiny cemetary , what gives a bunch of archies the right to trump the landowners right to their own property.

We don't live in the socialist world of Star Trek anymore where the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. On the contrary , if you can't protect the rights of the one , how can you protect the rights of the many and property rights are the cornerstone and foundation the country was founded on. How in the world can someone claim you are preserving historical artifacts by leaving them in the ground? Get 'em out of the ground and in a museum and let the owners create jobs and motivation for a better way of life. DYODD

It's not the Gettysburg battle field for crying out loud but a supply depot that has been forgotten for 200 years.

I'm very surprised you're on the side of commerce, versus history, Dusty. You're entitled to your opinion, yet I'm just as entitled to disagree with it. But I'd gladly still buy you a beer if we should ever cross paths…even if it’s the cheap stuff Happy

Contractors build malls and sub-divisons destroyed many Civil War sites in the Atlanta, Kennesaw, Marietta Georgia area.
I saw it happening every week for 7 years. If you were lucky, you got in there to hunt before it was built up with nice houses and manicured landscape.....
It's amazing how fast they can bulldoze down a mountain flat to build a sub-division on down there.
I have walked the CW trenches one day, the next they were gone.
In New Hope Church, part of Dallas, GA, they built a huge supermarket, restaurant and parking lot right on top of a CW battle site.

I lived 5 minutes away, moved there a bit to late. Before development came to town, it was basically a country back road. Local land owners sold and made money when the contractors and developers came to the area. Now its a busy area.
