"60 years ago Kiev's area witnessed some of the most severe battles of WW2. Covered with earth from explosions humans, arms and ammunitions were left on the battlefields.
With entering this site, you will join me and my friends visiting historic places of battles. We don't take standard trips with their boring guides, we take shovels, detectors and plenty of water. Water because the only way to find something is to dig and when you dig, you drink. You drink a lot because once you find a relic you can't stop digging, you know, it is real, it was there in the time of a great event and you know that next item can be this special one worth all you efforts."
Henry Lawson Wyatt & The Confederate Monument, Tarboro
The fountain pictured is in honor of Henry Lawson Wyatt and was dedicated by the Dixie Lee Chapter of the Children of the Confederacy in 1910. The Confederate Monument stands behind it. The Common is one of only two original remaining in these United State.
The criminal is not Assange, the criminal is our government and most of the others in the world.
PETITION: Americans deserve to know what the government is doing with their money. WikiLeaks is part of a vibrant free press, not a criminal conspiracy.

Must be true as the New York Times says it, you know like "Virginia, If you see it in the Sun, it's so." When someone continually lies, the Vietnamese say "His tongue has no bones" and that would certainly apply here.
".......when the Emancipation Proclamation became law—the president could use the map to follow Union troops as they liberated slaves........"
Fail. Go to the corner and put on the dunce cap. The exceptions are the areas that were then under Union control
The Great Emancipator
"Whereas on the 22nd day of September, A.D. 1862, a proclamation was issued by the President of the United States, containing, among other things, the following, to wit:
"That on the 1st day of January, A.D. 1863, all persons held as slaves within any State or designated part of a State the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free...
Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana (except the parishes of St. Bernard, Palquemines, Jefferson, St. John, St. Charles, St. James, Ascension, Assumption, Terrebone, Lafourche, St. Mary, St. Martin, and Orleans, including the city of New Orleans), Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia (except the forty-eight counties designated as West Virginia, and also the counties of Berkeley, Accomac, Northhampton, Elizabeth City, York, Princess Anne, and Norfolk, including the cities of Norfolk and Portsmouth), and which excepted parts are for the present left precisely as if this proclamation were not issued."
NOTE - Slavery was NOT abolished in one Confederate (Tennessee) and four Union states (Maryland, Delaware. Kentucky, West Virginia, and Missouri)."
Pesky, pesky facts ........

Let me ask you a question, do you believe your State will be willing to stand up for the principles of freedom and independence when the “stuff” hits the fan? Or will it sheepishly and complacently accept this growing Orwellian society that Washington, D.C., is serving up? I’ll tell you this for sure: if you believe you will ever need to move in order to maintain liberty for your children and grandchildren, YOU BETTER MOVE NOW, because it won’t be long and you won’t be able to move. “They” won’t let you! Let me ask it another way: when the stuff hits the fan, do you want to be where you are, or someplace else?
"You like to feel yourself a little more a citizen of Virginia, like Virginia is like somehow a different country. Or these states are all different countries."
Bingo, Matthews! We tried peacefully leaving before and now secession seems to be the flavor of the day once again. What a blithering idiot.
