LOL Coy. A few years back I ran into Jim Lighthizer at the Carter House. That year they had also included Gettysburg as a most endangered site. Jim and I exchanged pleasantries for a while, then I looked at him and said something like "C'mon Jim, you can't actually believe Gettysburg is one of the ten most endangered fields, can you? You put it on the list because Gettysburg is where  the money is, didn't you?" I said it good-naturally and he took no offense. He just looked at me and gave me the most mischivious chesire cat grin I'd ever seen. I knew then I probably had it right. It's where the money is.

In fairness though, it should be pointed out that CWPT has often put endangered western theatre fields in the spotlight - Pea Ridge, Perryville, Parker's Crossroad's, etc. Good to see you on the board again!
