About that Ancient Burial Mound Being Destroyed for a Sam’s Club…

Maybe it won’t be destroyed after all!

To get caught up on the issue, here’s my previous post on the subject.

Facing South reports that in response to community protests, especially from the Native Americans to whom the mound held particular significance, Walmart/Sam’s Club has decided to buy their fill-dirt elsewhere. YAY!

Deep Fried Kudzu reports that “On Sunday, August 30, a protest and reconsecration ceremony has been scheduled at the mound from 2p-5p.”
