That's a shame. The developer of the subdivision apparently cares more about profit than he does in preserving the Civil War Cemetary and honoring the people buried there.

Well, it is a free country...........if you disagree with how PRIVATE PROPERTY is being utilized......perhaps you should buy it and then put the property to use as YOU see fit.

Then YOU can bare the responsibilities of private land ownership such as paying property taxes for services you will NEVER receive, liability insurance, free for all trespassing, vandalism, dumping, and marajuana crops grown on your property WITHOUT your permission.

I strongly recommend YOU carry out the convictions of your beliefs and stop complaining about what other citizens do with THEIR PRIVATE PROPERTY and set the AMERICAN example.

Show these misguided property owners how to do it RIGHT!

Wow! I'm sorry if I offended you! I think you've gone overboard in expressing your disagreement with what SmokyMtnGal and I said.

That is good news. And, yeah, chill dude, libertarianism is one thing, but not protecting history is another.

Ummm.....actually no. I am NOT a developer. I do a good bit of wildlife and local historical preservation on the land that I own but I do it on my OWN land because I choose to do it of my FREE will. I value our nation's history AND it's Constitution which supposedly protects the private property of each one of us. Old abandoned cemetaries, old stone chimneys, old cedar log buildings that were slave quarters or smoke houses......they tell us a little of our valuable history. Those who fail to learn from it are condemned to repeat and relive it.
