300,000,000+ Americans alive today, how many will actually go see one of these historical places?
Historical places are like sports. Some people are onto them and others are not. They only mean something to the people that like them.
I wouldn't give two nickles for the Mona Lisa..... but that's just me.
Good point. I'd imagine that a walmart and a larger commercial center (bigger than the one that already exists across the street and down a few feet from the proposed site) would attract more people, which people would be more likely to stop at the battlefield site and participate and soak up some of the history there.
I wouldn't mind Mona Lisa except for that stupid smirk on her face. Like she's staring at a booger on my cheek or something.
