Cindy Sheehan, the mother whose son, Casey Sheehan, died in Iraq in 2004 stopped-off in Charlottesville Friday night.

She began her trek in Crawford, Texas, last week on her way to the steps of the Capitol in Washington D.C.

Charlottesville police had extra officers out during the rally.
The crowd screamed and exchanged heated words.

It was not only Sheehan's led group that showed up, a counter protest group 'the gathering of eagles' showed up as well.

"My feeling is that Cindy Sheehan, about her the less said the better. She doesn't represent Conservatives and she doesn't represent liberals either in this country in a way she's a distraction from the real debate" said Gathering Of Eagles Representative Josh Levy.

Sheehan's message Friday went out to Pelosi and the House Democrats: Impeach President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney.

"We're asking for the Democrats to impeach George Bush and Dick Cheney. If they don't by Monday introduce articles of impeachment then I will be running against Nancy Pelosi in California's Eighth District" said Sheehan.

Sheehan is calling on Nancy Pelosi to start the impeachment papers by Monday, or she says she will run against her for her seat in the House.

Sheehan's cross country trip ends Monday in Washington D.C. with a peaceful protest outside the Capitol.
