This entire page was copied, without attribution, from http://www.nps.gov/hps/abpp/battles/va059.htm. See several discussions here: http://www.conservapedia.com/User_talk:Hsmom for my thoughts on this. Copying, word-for-word, without attribution, from a source in the public domain, is plagiarism, an intellectually dishonest form of deceit. When a reader does not know the source an article is based on (let alone copied from), the reader cannot judge the reliability of the source, and is hindered in detecting the bias or point of view of the original writer. Just because something comes from a government source, does not automatically mean it is accurate, reliable, or without bias. --Hsmom 12:05, 21 April 2011 (EDT)
