National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis announced, June 10, more than $3.1 million in grants to help preserve Civil War battlefields. The Land and Water Conservation Fund grants will preserve more than 270 acres of battlefields that are threatened with damage or destruction by development, he said.
They include $78,531.50 to the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission for 8.85 acres at Gettysburg.
In related news, the Department of Treasury has announced that for the 90th straight day our national debt remains at $18,112,975,000,000.
Remember way back in the summer of 2008 all those news stories about how our $9 trillion was a national scandal? Times sure do change.
