Gettysburg Cyclorama Building to be Demolished
So unless you've been living under a rock (or maybe a big clunker of a building) or have no interest in the Civil War you already have heard the good news that the old Gettysburg Cyclorama building will be coming down soon. Like other misguided and misplaced attractions on the battlefield this one will fade into memory shortly only remembered by post cards and photos. Maybe the NPS or Foundation will sell pieces of the building much like pieces of the old Berlin Wall were readily available a few years ago. Laugh if you will but I see nothing wrong with this idea. The building is coming down so why not try to make a few bucks off it in the process. Just make the price reasonable and I think folks might be willing to pick up a small memento of this badly placed building even if it is just to say "Thank God, it's gone and the original view is back."
