Dear Modders: This is to let you know that when I attempted to download the HPS Civil War Map Mod, I got a 404 error (can't find the page error). This was updated on 5/12/12 so maybe a letter error? Could you look into it for those of us who are interested in modding the maps? (The unit links were f...

I just returned from Gettysburg, and would like to comment on the philosophy of the Park Service. It is now the policy of the Park Service to actively restore the controlled portions of the battlefield to as accurate a condition as possible.
