They named a HIGHWAY after Jefferson Davis?!?

That actually makes sense in an odd way. Route 1 in Virginia has always been Richmond Highway and the White House of the Confederacy is in Richmond. And it seems that it will revert back to Richmond Highway in the future.

Lee-Jackson Day is near Robert E. Lee and Thomas 'Stonewall' Jackson's birthdays. The really awkward thing was when MLK, Jr. was given a Federal Holiday, Virginia combined the holidays. HOW INAPPROPRIATE IS THAT!?!?!?! Now Lee-Jackson Day is the Friday beforehand.

AC *Virginia's history is long and quite the tangled web*
