: Today's edition of the Gettysburg Times (http://www.gburgtimes.com/) reports that yesterday (Thursday - 12/9/99) Government officials filed an eminent domain lawsuit to seize the national Gettysburg Battlefield Tower at federal district court in Harrisburg. The story goes on to say that the condemnation case will take about six months and that the only issue being how much the Government must pay for the tower.
: Check the story out for yourself.

Although the National tower is a disgrace and dishonorable to the men who fought at Gettysburg the government should be spending money on buying land that is not protected at the moment. 6 million dollars could buy a lot of land!!
Most of you probably disagree but I think it is more important to save land that is not protected than to worry about something that is already there and is an educational tool. When we get the majority of land saved then we should worry about things like the Nati. tower.
