Walmart Abandons Plans to Build Superstore on Wilderness Battlefield
In the face of a legal challenge, Walmart has announced that it will no longer pursue a plan to build a Superstore on a privately-owned portion of the Wilderness Battlefield in Orange County, Virginia. The Civil War battle at Wilderness resulted in one of the most decisive moments of the War and is considered, in some ways, as significant as the battle of Gettysburg. NPCA worked with the Wilderness Battlefield Coalition to ensure protection of this significant battlefield site.
