Train Station Bill scheduled for vote!

News just in that Representative Scott Perry's bill, HR 1513, has been added to this weeks schedule in the House of Representatives.  The bill, which also adds some land in Cumberland Township along Plum Run, would clear the path for the National Park Service to acquire the wonderfully restored historic Train Station, located a few yards north of the Majestic Theater on Carlisle Street in Gettysburg. 

It was this station where President Lincoln arrived on November 18th, 1863 and departed from a day later after offering his 'few dedicatory remarks" at the new National Soldiers Cemetery. 

The small station has been carefully restored to a grand delight right out of 1863. 

Our thanks to Congressman Perry for his work in introducing this bill.  Hopefully the House will pass it, followed shortly by a similar action in the Senate.  We will keep you posted on the bill's progress.

“Be steadfast in your anger, be sure in your convictions, be moved by the right and certainty that abuse of power must be defeated at every turn; uphold Liberty as the just reward of a watchful people, and let not those who have infringed upon that Liberty steal it away from you. Never loosen your grip on Liberty!" -- GettysBLOG
