This establishment feels like a twist between a Flea Market and a museum. There are some interesting pieces, and the lay out is easy to get around. Nothing, however, justified that this museum collects income from selling modern right wing tokens such as shot glasses with the Confederate flag that say, "heritage not hate,' "don't tread on me" patches, and Confederate flags to be hung outside ones home.
The battle of Gettysburg was a turning point in the Civil War, and I would expect that a museum seeking to accurately represent that history would be resistant to the revisionist historical accounts of this war such as are perpetuated by groups such as the Daughters of the Confederacy, who sought to rewrite the war as a battle over states rights rather than the emancipation of slavery. This revisionist goal and history is well documented.
Either unwittingly or intentionally, the sale of token that represent a historically inaccurate revision of the Civil War is unacceptable in an establishment that claims to be a "museum of history."
