Why we place Civil War markers

The Kinston Free Press has an explanation as to why otherwise normal people like Mike Edge would want to raise money for Civil War Trail markers in North Carolina. Read it and weep:
The sites are published on an annual map, and Edge said many people travel the trail. They also spend more then the average tourist. That's why Edge's group is trying to raise the money to put up two historical markers in Greene County, one at the U.S. 13/N.C. 903 intersection and another at the Scuffleton Bridge.
