Today, I drove up to Gettysburg, PA. While in Gettysburg, I spent some time looking at a few antique stores and a museum.
At one antique store, I found and purchased these two newspapers:
Another antique store had this stereoview card of the room in which Lincoln died, but it was a bit out of my price range:
I then went to the Gettysburg Museum of History. Those of you who watch the History channel show, American Pickers, might remember one episode in which the pickers, Mike and Frank, are commissioned by the curator of the Gettysburg Museum of History to find some items for him. The museum is quite remarkable with a large and varied collection of items. In particular interest to me was this shelf of Lincoln and Lincoln assassination related materials:
There are many other items in the collection worth seeing, including an entire room devoted to JFK and his assassination. So, next time you’re in Gettysburg, check out the Gettysburg Museum of History.
