An armed robbery at a Rockbridge County gas station turned into a multi-county police chase.
State police say several juveniles held up the Natural Bridge Exxon last night around 8-30.
State troopers pulled over their getaway vehicle on Interstate 81 near Troutville in Botetourt County.
Two youths were arrested there but three more escaped and were later arrested on Alternate 220 near Bonsack.
The gas station's cash drawer and an undisclosed amount of money were recovered.
The suspects are being held in the Rockbridge County jail.
Their names are NOT being released because of their ages.

(( ((NAT SOUND OF STEPPING))
Lexington this weekend looked more like a page out of a history book.
Hundreds of Civil War re-enactors dressed up in period costumes to honor the lives our civil war veterans.
[SOT 22:28:47]
[IN Q=I don't think there is]

((DOREEN GREENE/REENACTOR: I DON'T THINK THERE IS ENOUGH RESPECT FOR A LOT OF OUR SOLDIERS. AND I THINK THIS IS THE WAY WE CAN SHOW THEM THAT WE APPRECIATE WHAT THEY DID FOR US.))
[Runs= 07]
[OUT Q=did for us]


To show that appreciation, Lexington held a memorial service and then a parade through downtown to the gates of VMI.


For many, its a day to honor Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson.
But for some, this celebration is more personal.

[IN Q=My great great]

((PAIGE GREENE: MY GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT GRANDFATHER WAS IN THE WAR SO ITS KINDA SORT OF A TRIBUTE TO HIM.))
[Runs= 06]
[OUT Q=tribute to him]
[SOT 23:22:09]
[IN Q=this day is more]

((JUSTIN McLEOD/REPORTING: THIS DAY IS MORE THAN JUST ABOUT DRESSING UP AND PAYING TRIBUTE TO THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO DIED IN THE WAR. THE OLDER GENERATION WANTS TO THE YOUNGER ONES TO REALIZE THE SACRIFICE AND CAUSE THESE MEN AND WOMEN FOUGHT FOR.))
[Runs= 11]
[OUT Q=women fought for]

((NAT SOUND OF PARADE))
One school teacher wanted a better understanding of that sacrifice.
She recently moved to the area and plans to take what she learned here back to the classroom.
[SOT 22:44:15]
[IN Q=We teach the past]

((PRISCILLA KMETZ/TEACHER: WE TEACH THE PAST AND HOW IT APPLY TO TODAY, WHAT WE NEED TO LEARN FROM WHAT HAPPENED IN THE PAST. I FIND IT VERY INFLUENTIAL TO BRING BACK TO MY CLASSROOM.))
[Runs= 11]
[OUT Q=to my classroom]


And there's a lot to learn.
Many know Jackson and Lee's contributions to the Lexington area.
What many people don't realize is what effect the civil war had on this area.
[SOT 23:02:19]
[IN Q=Lexington suffered pretty]

((BRANDON DORSEY/ORGANIZER: LEXINGTON SUFFERED PRETTY BAD IN THIS WAR. I DON'T THINK MOST PEOPLE KNOW HOW BAD THIS TOWN WAS RANSACKED.))
[Runs= 06]
[OUT Q=town was ransacked]

((NAT SOUND OF DRUMS 22:56:26)) Organizers hope to drum up enough support to keep this celebration going year after year. After all its a picture perfect day (shot of woman taking picture) that would look good in any history book. Justin McLeod, News 7, Lexington.))
