Manageable simply because the numbers are far below the predicted attendance.

Nobody wants to come to this god-forsaken dung heap. This place eats sliced turds and the whole world knows it. I hate this GD town.
Where are the local blowhards who were cheerleading and trumpeting how great the 150th Anniversary would be? It was a failure and a dangerous time for all involved. People see Gettysburg for what it is, a festering sewer full of street gangs and child rapists.
I guess you were not in town the past couple of days. All the shuttle buses were running full, all the satellite parking lots were full, heavy but manageable traffic in town, that was moving, and foot traffic downtown and on Steinwehr Ave.

Maybe not as big a crowd as they expected, but there were also many on the battlefield. Why don't we wait till the numbers come in and see how it was.

Basically they had to declare a state of emergency, police had machine guns at the ready on the streets, helicopters overhead with snipers, a lockdown of the hospital, and you have the gall to come on here and say it wasn't that bad?
You are a worthless hick loser. Gettysburg is a crime cesspool. Reap it, you dumb yokel. Everything I predicted has come true so far. Just wait, it's going to get worse in Gettysburg. Much worse.
