small town in Soutwestern Virginia, about 70 miles from Charlottesville.

Hilly and conservative, it is the home of Jerry Falwell and his college-Liberty College.

(Never has there been a school with a name less appropriate to it's mission).

Lynchburg lacks a significant Civil war battlesite, a decent airport, a beach or close access to the Blue Ridge parkway. Hence it looks much like it did 70 years ago.

Like most of the South, it likes that just fine.
