The Herr Tavern and Publick House was built in 1815 by Thomas Sweeney. Sweeney built his tavern here to capitalize on the route that led west. This is now US Route 30. It is  possible that while Sweeney owned the tavern, Davey Lewis hid out there. Davey Lewis was a famous  bank robber in the early 1800's. There are stories of "Lewis the Robber" using the tavern as a  base of operations for counterfeiting. If this was the Davey Lewis of legend, he had to have been  here when Thomas Sweeney owned the building, because Davey Lewis died in prison in Bellefonte  in 1820. Bank Robbers aside, Mr. Sweeney's prosperity would not last long.

"The world will little note, nor long remember, what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here." These words from Abraham Lincoln's famous address were delivered in Gettysburg to mark the dedication of its national cemetery in November 1863. Four months earlier, from July 1 to 3, 51,000 Americans were killed, wounded, or counted as missing in the bloodiest battle of the Civil War. The events that took place in Gettysburg during those few days marked the turning point in the war. Although the struggle raged on for almost two more years, the Confederate forces never recovered from their losses.

At the national military park and at 20 museums in Gettysburg, you can recapture the power of those momentous days. You can see battlefields such as Little Round Top, Big Round Top, and Devil's Den. A $39 million, 15-acre visitor center and museum is being built at Gettysburg National Military Park on the outskirts of the battlefield. The building will allow the park to preserve and display its extensive collection of Civil War artifacts. Also under way is a 20-year, $63 million restoration of the battlefield to its 1863 condition.  Source: NY Times
