Virginia is for lovers

Blood-drenched landscapes of unspeakable slaughter don't have to be a buzz-kill. If you think Virginia's Civil War battlefields are somber, joyless places, perhaps you didn't get the memo. Virginia is for lovers.


It's right there at Virginia.org. If you pay some outfit to devise a slogan, get your money's worth, and make sure the message is rammed home after every single search result. What's more romantic than the Mule Shoe at Spotsylvania?

Stephen,

Makes you think of Valentine's Day, doesn't it?

Or the Valentine's Day Massacre.
