the people responsible for getting the national trust falsely fired up is a group of neighbors living on a road near the battlefield. they are making this look like there are huge numbers of people supporting them when its really just 5 or 6 people that are trying to get the right contacts and names attached to their cause. there county voted on this and they filed a lawsuit against there own county in return. if cedar creek and bell grove knew better they would keep doing what they always have and stay away from irrational neighborhood screamers pretending to be something they aren't.
