Today, Oct. 17, 2017, is a sad day for our history. It is not enough that we are faced with the recent vandalizing of our Confederate Soldiers Monument, now we see the Town of Romney considering the historic site just a piece of commercial land to be used to enrich their coffers. The city has sold two burial slots of his choice in the space just east of the Confederate Soldiers grave sites to Royce Saville for his personal use. This is an egregious conversion of part of a 150 year old historic site to personal use by someone. Now the rest of the burial places in those two family lots should be available for sale to whomever wants one.
