GETTYSBURG, Pa. -- Gettysburg is under siege, and the struggle is as much over fallow fields as hallowed ground.Spurred by the widening of a nearby highway and the opening of a Wal-Mart to call its own, this historic town is witnessing unprecedented pressure from developers, one of whom is proposing a 320,000-square-foot shopping center that would abut the Civil War battlefield.The plan has loosed volleys of displeasure not heard since the Erector-set-like, 330-foot-tall National Tower observation platform was raised nearly a score of years ago.Gettysburg Borough and the surrounding townships have long been at odds over the nature and amount of development that should be permitted, with some municipal officials contending that the economy has suffered by attempts to keep the park setting pristine.

While the annual Gettysburg battle re-enactment always provides a great deal of action and excitement, it also serves to support preservation around the area. Every year, the Gettysburg Anniversary Committee chooses a number of different organizations to support. The 141st Gettysburg Re-enactment, which took place last summer, was no different. One of the organizations supported by the re-enactment was the National Trust for Historic Gettysburg. According to the Annual Gettysburg Civil War Battle Re-enactment Web site, the National Trust is involved in a number of restoration efforts around Gettysburg.

THOUSANDS OF CIVIL War re-enactors will relive the three-day Battle of Gettysburg this weekend, and Roy Ashe, of Roy's Clock Shop in Hampstead, will be one of them.It's planned as the largest re-enactment to be staged on the Gettysburg fields, with about 15,000 men in uniform for the 135th anniversary of the battle.Ashe will portray his ancestor William Joynes, who served at age 19 as a private in the Confederate infantry, the 3rd Virginia volunteers known as the "Dismal Swamp Rangers."In his portrayal, Ashe will be a member of the 4th Virginia Cavalry, Company A -- but considerably older, somewhat heavier and more fortunate than the typical soldier who rode a horse.

GETTYSBURG, Pa. -- So, you want to learn about the Civil War.You go to Gettysburg. Big battle. Museum. Artifacts everywhere: cannon, muskets, pistols, bullets, flags.Slavery?Didn't slavery have something to do with it? You navigate through the halls of the Visitor Center of the Gettysburg National Military Park, past the exhibits on Civil War navies, medicines, canteens.Then you come to the closest thing on slavery -- a glass case the size of, say, a Yugo. It is an exhibit about U.S. Colored Troops.

Joel H. Rosenblatt worked on the design of the Bay Bridge, the Cabin John Bridge and the Capital Beltway. But the National Tower at Gettysburg is nearest and dearest to his heart. And the 320-foot-tall hourglass-shaped structure he designed to look out over the battlefield shouldn't be blown up, he says. It should be proudly preserved. Reviled as visual pollution by park officials and historic preservationists, the tower was a marvel of engineering in the early 1970s, said Rosenblatt.

David R. Craig scattered about 20 postcards on a long table in the back of the Historical Society of Harford County. "Finding mistakes on postcards is one of my favorite things to do when I look at them," said Craig, thumbing through a book. Seconds later, he laid the book on the table and pointed to a postcard. "This one says it's the Havre de Grace Race Track," said Craig, a Havre de Grace native. "The features of the track in relation to the date on the back of the card show me that it can't be the Havre de Grace track.
