Casino in Gettysburg-It's All About the Locals

That's right. The people of the Gettysburg area will be the most decisive factor in whether a new casino will be established there.

Like the situation with the Wilderness Wal Mart, public sentiment will decide if this bit of economic development will go forward. The area has lost many businesses in the past decade and the number of tourists has declined. The people may decide that the economy needs a casino.

The job of Civil War preservationists will be to convince them otherwise. That is where the CWPT and other organizations need to focus.
