Hallowed ground?

I remember reading a little while back about developers wanting to put up some kind of construction that encroached on the battleground at Gettysburg, site of one of the most important events in American history. Now, apparently Walmart wants to build in a spot that crowds in on some other historic territory:
Walmart is planning on building a 138,000 sq. ft. Superstore next to the Wilderness and Chancellorsville Battlefields.

Read a bit about it here. It is sad to consider how much regard for our history we lost in the latter part of the 20th Century.
