No Casino in Gettysburg!

I am very pleased to announce that after two very long years of deliberations, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board has decided NOT to issue a Category 2 Stand-Alone Slots License to Crossroads Gaming Resort and Spa. A license for a slots parlor near the Gettysburg Battlefield has been denied.

On a personal note, I would like to thank Susan Starr Paddock and the people behind No Casino Gettysburg, as well as everyone else who spoke out against a slots parlor at Gettysburg, for their hard work. Congratulations.

John,

I feel like a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. What a relief. Christmas has come a litle early this year for the entire Civil War community.

Regards,

Josh
