Movie Lincoln filmed in Virginia

Today is a big day for Virginia... Steven Spielberg's film Lincoln opens nationwide.  Filmed entirely in the Petersburg and Richmond areas, the tourism industry is hoping this will bring some history enthusiasts to our state for years to come. Stevenson Ridge is especially excited about the films' debut because one of our own was hired as an extra.  Congrats Trevor Spear!!  Here he is, so try to spot him in the movie...
