I cannot even express my reaction to this story. From the Nashua (New Hampshire) Telegraph Online:
Bones from a Civil War gravesite that had been offered for sale should receive a military funeral, a leader of a Civil War re-enactment group said Monday. But the owner of the bones would not say what will happen to them, calling them "private property."
The bones, included in the catalog of a Milford auction house for a sale Sunday in Bedford, were withdrawn from the sale amid complaints from Civil War hobbyists, veterans and state Attorney General Kelly Ayotte.
I wonder if the would-be seller would dig up her own grandmother and sell those bones too…
