Camp Letterman site update

Glen Hayes from the Gettysburg Battlefield Preservation Association has been working for almost two years in an impressive effort to save 17 acres from development at the site, which is owned by S&A Homes.

He has initiated a letter writing campaign, resulting in a voluminous amount of letters to S&A Homes, written by historical societies, roundtables (Lynn Heller has written twice on behalf of our roundtable), historians, including James McPherson, Harold Holzer, and Gary Gallagher, and preservation societies. Petitions have also been sent. The overwhelming public support from 37 states, Canada, England, and Italy, shows that Camp Letterman is an important part of the Battle of Gettysburg to many people. Resolution is expected in September.
For more information and an indepth interview with Glen Hayes go to www.historynet.com. In the search window type interview glen hayes and hit enter.
