Civil War heritage trail in the works
The trail, to be completed in time for next year's travel season, will include York, Wrightsville and Hanover as well as Harrisburg, Carlisle, Chambersburg and Gettysburg, all affected when the Army of Northern Virginia entered Pennsylvania in the summer of 1863.
Signs and markers are to be erected to draw people to historic sites, and officials are also planning overnight packages for local hotels and a day-trip itinerary to be posted on the state's tourism website.
Similar trails have already been set up in Maryland and Virginia.
