Trial date set for Wal-Mart near battlefield
A trial date has been set on a bid to block a Wal-Mart Supercenter near an endangered Civil War battlefield in Northern Virginia.
At a hearing Friday, Orange County Circuit Court Judge Daniel Bouton scheduled the trial for Jan. 25. In late April, Bouton kept alive the fight to block the Supercenter near where Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant first met on the field of battle.
The judge ruled that residents who live near the battlefield and a historic group can contest at trial the county's approval of the store in Locust Grove.
