Gettysburg is a magnet for Civil War buffs the year round. But this week it’s an ideal fall getaway.
For about a week, visitors to the Gettysburg battlefield could pick up a unique souvenir: a bobblehead doll of Abraham Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth.
This is Gettysburg Weekend, which marks the 148th anniversary of the epic Civil War battle often called the high water mark of the Confederacy. Even today, there are things to learn about it.
A group seeking to place a casino near the historic battlefield was among the losing applicants today as the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board awarded the state’s last currently available casino license to a resort near Pittsburgh.
