From: meeksterActually development of Civil War sites is a very big problem. Here in Marietta, Ga there are quite a few sites that have either been destroyed or in in grave danger of being destroyed all in the name of $500k- $1m/house neighborhoods. It's really pathetic.

Specific info about my area. A disheartening excerpt: "In the last year, preservationists have had some limited success protecting remnants of the Confederate and Federal lines near Dallas Highway and Brushy Mountain. Unfortunately, in some instances earthworks have been intentionally bulldozed to avoid complications that could scare away potential developers."
From: Indy in IndianaI hope they get a Poltergeist.
