Help Protect the Hallowed Ground of Gettysburg
Thank you for your interest in helping protect the hallowed ground of Gettysburg, but this alert is no longer active.
UPDATE: 4/14/2011--The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) has denied the application to operate a casino near Gettysburg National Military Park! The license was instead awarded to an applicant in southwestern PA at Nemacolin.
This marks the culmination of the second fight to stop the licensing of a casino near one of our nation’s most sacred places. There is no doubt that the widespread public opposition, including a letter from 275 prominent historians, more than 13,000 letters of opposition from NPCA members and supporters and a petition signed by over 30,000 Americans, weighed heavily in the PGCB’s decision.
Consider taking action on other issues.
