The Army Corps of Engineers has ordered the builder of a shopping mall to halt work on wetlands in Manassas, Va., that are within a disputed construction site bordering a historic Civil War battlefield, a spokesman said. The cease-and-desist order applies to work being done at Young's Branch, a creek running through the Civil War battlefield site, where developers Hazel/Peterson Cos. have started construction of one of two roads that would cross the creek.

Here would come the President, striding briskly alongside as his wife and children rode in the horse-drawn carriage, taking a moment now and then to study a distant bird or peer at game tracks beside the dusty road. The year was 1907, and President Theodore Roosevelt was walking the final leg of the nine-mile trip from the North Garden train depot to Pine Knot, his woodland retreat in the rolling hills three hours south of Washington.

A House subcommittee approved a bill to take lands from a private developer planning to build a shopping center adjacent to a Civil War battlefield. The national parks and public lands panel of the Interior and Insular Affairs Committee acted to take control of a 542-acre tract bordering the Manassas National Battlefield Park. Historians say the shopping center would destroy the still-rustic sanctity of the 4,600-acre battlefield park in Prince William County, Va.

OCCASIONALLY, in the most unexpected of places, one comes across a recipe that fits into the Southern California life style. Such a dish turned up not long ago in that land of tradition, Richmond, Va. There, the elegant, turn-of-the-century Jefferson Sheraton Hotel, which is listed in both the National Register of Historic Places and in the Virginia Landmarks Register, has been restored to its former state of formal elegance.

It is, first and foremost, genteel, this Hunt Country of Virginia, this leaf-lit and rolling land that's a nostalgic autumn painting of horses and hounds and scarlet-coated riders sailing across heavy timbered jumps in full-on pursuit of the fox. It is the fox--or more precisely, the fate of the fox--that suggests just how genteel.
