    Designating the Great Dismal Swamp in Virginia and North Carolina a National Heritage Area is a great and timely idea.

    U.S. Rep. Donald McEachin, a Democrat representing Virginia’s 4th Congressional District, has introduced a bill to start the official process. He’s joined by Reps. Elaine Luria and Bobby Scott of Virginia and Reps. Greg Murphy and G.K. Butterfield of North Carolina. The designation is supported by the Nansemond Indian Nation, the Haliwa-Saponi Indian Tribe, the Association for the Study of African American Life & History and an impressive list of groups and government organizations.
