Great news! Keep us posted on all these upcoming events, and help make folks aware of all the history around here!(And bring some business here, too, to the towns and small merchants of south central PA!)

No business wants to come here because there is such a history of a small local minority that is allowed to dictate what is and is not acceptable here in LEGAL BUSINESSES!

Letís not get off on the wrong foot, yes Iím a rein actor and have been for five years, and dame proud of it. prior to that I provided EMS and security care at events starting at the 135th at Gettysburg.
Iíve seen first hand the attitude from some of the shop owners and the big money players itís despicable at the least.
They donít care about history, just how much money goes into there pockets.
The owner of the Yeanling farm was paid 400.000 to have the 135th event on her farm it is the perfect spot, the next year she wanted 500.000.
Itís time the tax payers of Adams County put an end to this BS before your municipality lose anymore respect.

I bet you can make some good money renting your place out during that time. When the Superbowl came to Detroit a few years ago, a lot of people in the metro area did so.

Better not let Mrs Paddock hear about this! Only those that she approves of are allowed to use and profit from the "Gettysburg Brand".
