Default Sorting Datefield in a DataView

I have several columns which I've sorted but the Date Field sorts as a string rather than as a date and I can't seem to figure out how to fix that. Below is my code.

Thanks for your help.


public partial class MyProjects : System.Web.UI.Page
{
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {


        if (!Page.IsPostBack)
        {
            Session["SortExpression"] = "";
            Session["SortDirection"] = "";
        }
        SDU.Service_Class.DataService ds =
        new SDU.Service_Class.DataService(Request.ApplicationP ath,
"ProMan", SDU.Service_Class.DataService.QueryType.STORED_PRO C,
"p_get_projects");
            if (ds.ExecuteCommand(30))
        {
            Session["MyProjects"] = ds.GetData.Tables[0];
            gProjects.DataSource = (DataTable)Session["MyProjects"];
            gProjects.DataBind();
            foreach (GridViewRow row in gProjects.Rows)
            {
                //row.Cells.
            }
        }
        gProjects.RowStyle.Height = 20;
        {


            String expression = "";
            SortDirection direction;


        }
    }
    protected void gProjects_Sorting(object sender,
GridViewSortEventArgs e)
    {
        DataView dv = new DataView((DataTable)Session["MyProjects"]);
        string direction;
        if (Session["SortExpression"].ToString() == e.SortExpression)
        {
            if (Session["SortDirection"].ToString() == "ASC")
            {
                direction = "DESC";
            }
            else
            {
                direction = "ASC";
            }
        }
        else
        {
            direction = "ASC";
        }


        dv.Sort = e.SortExpression + " " + direction;
        gProjects.DataSource = dv;
        gProjects.DataBind();
        Session["SortExpression"] = e.SortExpression;
        Session["SortDirection"] = direction;
    }
