From the Provost's Inbox:

Dear Sir, my name is John Michalek and I live in the City of Petersburg
Virginia, famous for the battle of the crater, and involved in the
seige of Richmond. We are in need of help! Currently our city is
considering the development of approximately 8 miles of road frontage with housing and apartments. These roads, Defense and Flank Roads were given to the City by the US Park Service around 1973. These roads also present with miles of offensive and defensive lines and numerous forts used during the battle of Petersburg. Currently a petition has been formulated online in an attempt to gain as many signitures locally, state, and nationwide in an attempt to stop this development. Any assistance in linking this petition or signitures would be greatly appriciated. Link is listed
below with further details.
