A War That Just Won't Go Away


Recommended Posts

I came across a blog yesterday where a guy was talking about "Treason Road." He was referring to the Jefferson Davis Highway in the District of Columbia and Virginia. David Kampf said, "The thought of having to drive my car over his highway instead of his decrepid corpse is enough to make me want to vomit.


"The Jefferson Davis Highway should be renamed immediately and not by the federal government, which already has renamed it US-1, but by the State of Virginia and the District of Columbia, both of whom preserve the original name on street signs. Until then, I will refer to it only as Treason Highway. I hope you do too, lest we really forget the ugliness of Jefferson Davis and the brutality, racism and sedition that compose his legacy."


I take it he isn't much impressed with Jefferson Davis.


I understand there is also quite a controversy out in Oregon over a Jefferson Davis Highway.
