    What appalling laws the "Land of the free" has had to outgrow. Another brave woman who did what was right.

    Against the peace and dignity of the Commonwealth, the only action taken by the Lovings was to get married. This charge makes it sound like they were leading riots or destroying property. And folks say there wasn't a reason for the Civil Rights movement.
