WHY SAVE CHANCELLORSVILLE? • Lt. Gen. “Stonewall” Jackson was wounded here by friendly fire and died. • Over 30,000 people died, were captured or wounded during this battle.It’s an insult to those people to destroy this battle field. • If we destroy this battlefield, people won’t care about this historyanymore. • The last thing the world needs is more buildings. http://members.tripod.com/andrew_dehart/
