Gettysburg NMP increases in size with acquisition of 2 tracts

During a visit to Gettysburg National Military Park (GNMP) last week, U.S. Secretary of the Interior David L. Bernhardt awarded a $573,000 Battlefield Land Acquisition Grant to the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission (PHMC) to acquire two tracts for the park.

“The American Battlefield Protection Program (ABPP) funding will enable the PHMC and project partner American Battlefield Trust (ABT) to acquire the East Cemetery Hill tract and the Vermont tract portions of the Gettysburg battlefield. The tracts were previously held by a private property owner,” said GNMP representative Cynthia Hernandez.
