What a waste. Historical accuracy is nice, but you are hurting the economy of the people actually live there. No one can build! It's not Disneyworld. It's a park too close to town limits. Gettysburg is relying too much on tourists and history buffs. Look at how the town was hit when gas prices went up and no one was traveling. I highly doubt a pre-existing building or a stand of trees will destroy the idea of the 1863 setting.

Destroying trees (which help add oxygen to the atmosphere) and habitat for wildlife is a great idea, NPS! It's so hard for me to imagine what the battlefield might have looked like in 1863 - please dumb it down for me. Morons.

My house wasn't there during the battle. Maybe the NPS will buy it and tear it down. In fact, the road in front of my house wasn't there during the battle. How about tearing that up, too! Get real, NPS! Of all things to destroy, couldn't you pick something detrimental to our health?
