The war continues over a proposed Wal-Mart Supercenter near a Civil War battlefield in Virginia.

The Orange County Board of Supervisors is asking a judge to drop a legal challenge from preservationists and residents, who say the store threatens the Wilderness Battlefield, where 30,000 Union and Confederate soldiers were injured or killed 145 years ago.

Orange County approved the store in August, and says the opponents have no standing in the dispute.

A judge has not scheduled a hearing on the motion.
