KKK, kept from Gettysburg park, hold event in town
GETTYSBURG, Pa. (AP)–— Four members of the Ku Klux Klan held an event in downtown Gettysburg after the federal government shutdown canceled their plans to rally on the nearby battlefield park grounds.
The Evening Sun of Hanover reported that the group’s leader, Richard Preston, said at the Saturday event they still hope to get a permit for a park event next month.
The paper says several dozen supporter and spectators were on hand as Preston spoke for a little less than an hour.
The Adams Unity Coalition held a counter event about a mile away, “Voices of Unity.”
