This article focuses on the conflict between organizations involved in the preservation and maintenance of the Gettysburg National Military Park in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. At the center of this conflict is John A. Latschar who took over as superintendent of the park in August 1994. Latschar started to restore important landscapes and led the Park Service to set in motion plans for a new museum and visitor center, using a partnership with nonprofit Gettysburg Foundation. Critics of Latschar contends that he made many promises that were not fulfilled.
