View Full Version : Pa. Preservation License Plate

07-17-2014, 11:57 AM
Pennsylvania will be issuing special “Gettysburg Monument” license plates, pursuant to Act 109 signed by the governor on July 2, 2014. The plates will cost an additional $54 over the usual registration and $23 of that fee will be allocated to a special fund for cleaning, repair and restoration of Pennsylvania monuments at Gettysburg National Military Park. The license plates, which will picture the Pennsylvania Memorial at GNMP, are expected to be available in November.

The plate was advocated by State Representative Harry Readshaw as part of the Pennsylvania Gettysburg Monuments Project that raised funds for the restoration and upkeep of monuments at the Gettysburg National Military Park. “Readshaw’s Raiders” raised money over the years through the efforts of concerned individuals, school students, reenactor units, CWRTs, civic organizations and businesses.

Each year the project sponsors the Civil War Preservation Ball and the Harrisburg to Gettysburg Motorcycle Ride to raise additional funds. Currently, the project has over $400,000 in a trust that GNMP uses for maintenance and repair of monuments.
