Tomorrow's Final Vote on the Gettysburg Casino

Tomorrow, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) will vote to award the remaining Pennsylvania slots licenses throughout the Keystone State. Despite overwhelming local and national objections to this proposal, the PGCB still may approve building a casino so close to the battlefield that no question remains of the damage it will cause. A casino so near the endangered ground of the Gettysburg Battlefield would seriously threaten the ability to protect and preserve one of America's most precious and revered historical locations.

Please, take a moment today to write to the PGCB and express your opposition. Your word does count but time has almost run out. If the investors build this casino, we will not be able to reverse the damage.

Please contact the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board at the link below.

Contact the PGCB.

It is fantastic news that the casino was rejected. Thanks for all your work getting the message out. I hope that our little Civil War blogosphere, helped make a little difference if enlightening those out on the web.

Hi Mike,

It's an honor to be included in the effort that you and the entire Civil War community put forth for this purpose. I think everyone involved in protecting the battlefield should take a moment to be thankful that this ground has been spared a major threat to its continued preservation. Hopefully now we can all focus on honoring the memory of the men who sacrificed for our future and on a mutual love of American history, what it means to us and to the generations to come.

Happy Holidays,
