A 12-ton light-up map of the decisive moments of the Battle of Gettysburg saved from the scrap heap by a central Pennsylvania businessman may soon be on display again.
Owner Scott Roland told The (Hanover) Evening Sun that he hadn't anticipated that so much refurbishment work would be required. He said asbestos had to be removed from the 30-by-30-foot plaster and steel map. Then he found that many of the 600 lights were broken and the control system was missing.
But, he hopes to have it on display again by month's end. Roland bought the longtime Gettysburg National Military Park fixture at auction for $14,000 in September 2012. He has put it in a Hanover building that he says will eventually serve as a conference and heritage center.
