Well, you may have seen our front page by now - complete with the rarely used red headline. I'm sure there's going to be many people who think this is a great move. I think it's a folly. I'll give my reasons over time (I smell an editorial coming), but I want to see other opinions. I'll just say this - anyone who thinks you can build an 8000-square foot museum for $5 million is fooling themselves. Comments....?

Museum of the Confederacy Contents to Split Three Ways

VA--The Museum of the Confederacy has found a new home for the world’s largest collection of Civil War artifacts. Make that homes. Three Virginia localities will serve as a museum “system,” replacing the single museum that has stood at 12th and East Clay streets since 1976. Officials Tuesday announced two of those sites - the Appomattox Court House National Park and the Chancellorsville Battlefield Visitor Center near Fredericksburg.
