Breaking News

The oldest building at the 6,000-acre Gettysburg Battlefield is getting a facelift following years of deterioration.

Gettysburg National Military Park crews began disassembling the historic Patterson House this week in preparation to restore the 146-year-old log home.

Historians believe that the building served as the headquarters of Union cavalry General Alfred Pleasonton during the latter stages of the Battle of Gettysburg in 1863.
