War on History: Solar Farms encroaching on Civil War battlefields in VA | Beaufort County Now | history being lost to solar grifters in Virginia; may happen in NC with HB951

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Unmarked graves of both Confederate and Union soldiers from the War Between the States are threatened with being covered with solar panels in Virginia. Virginia's leftwing state government is backing it as historic preservationists fight tooth and nail to stop this travesty.  If the RINOs' HB951 passes the NC legislature, we may see the same sad developments here.  This is all part of the Green New Deal.

The battlefield of Savage's Station, an 1862 battle that was part of the Seven Days campaign around Richmond, in Henrico County, Virginia, was lost to a solar farm last year,  3,500 men from both sides died in that battle.  Culpepper County, around Fredericksburg has been much more successful, so far, in defending their battlefields from the threat of solar farms, as many citizens have gotten involved in the fight to save their history.  Attempts to build solar farms on the sites of the battles of Brandy Station, the largest cavalry battle in the War Between the States, and Morton's Ford, a small battle at the start of the Gettysburg campaign have been stopped in their tracks.


Europe has seen the same problem with World War I battlefields in France desecrated with wind and solar farms.  Historic preservation groups in Europe have engaged with the same fights with arrogant wind and solar companies who seem to care nothing about history.

The wind and solar goons just do not care what they destroy to put up their taxpayer and consumer ripoff installations. Here in Beaufort County, they used some of the best farmland in the county at Tera Ceia to put up their hideous solar farm, not marginal farmland or cut over woodsland elsewhere. That they mindlessly destroy historic sites, too, means nothing to these thugs. What is really obscene is the taxpayers subsidizing this crap. HB951 badly needs to be defeated. Tim Moore is nothing but a whore for the special interests. We can do a heck of a lot better for a House Speaker.
