July 2007 Peace Rally with Cindy Sheehan

On Friday, July 20th, 2007, Anti-War activist Cindy Sheehan and her entourage headlined the Charlottesville Anti-War/Impeachment Rally on the historic downtown mall. A few blocks away the Albemarle County chapter of the Republican Party organized a pro-war contingency and soon after marched to protest at the Sheehan event. I was there on the mall that day with my three kids. I didn’t have a video camera with me then, but I recently discovered this video online that shows both sides of the conflict. Sheehan and 45 other activists would be arrested on Capital Hill in an attempt to demand the impeachment of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.
