PAY FOR IT USING YOUR PICKETT'S CHARGE CARD:  There are two hours left in the GSA auction of the 28'x29', twelve ton electric light map depicting the Battle of Gettysburg, which had been a mainstay of the battlefield visitors center for decades.  You can see the map in action here.

update: SOLD! for $14,010 to a York Co. businessman who plans to put it on display in downtown Hanover, PA (still home of Snyder's Of).


  1. Someone must buy this so it can be used to create the greatest Gettysburg war game ever.

    They have the same style of map at Little Big Horn.  One of the downsides of computer technology is the all-but-complete abandonment of the sand table depiction of battles.

    Is it wrong to love the auction for the YOU WILL DIE aspect of the description?
