Mr. Gene Barr, a member of the National Civil War Museum’s Board of Directors, appeared on Radio Smart Talk, a local talk show on WITF, the Harrisburg public radio station. You can listen to the interview here.
Mr. Barr told us the museum is now the #1 tourist attraction for Harrisburg. He also provided the facts that contradicted the outlandishly false claims of Mayor Eric Papenfuse and provided the facts behind the funding for the museum.
Mayor Papenfuse wants to sell off the museum’s artifacts and repurpose the museum’s building. Mr. Barr made a telling point that the mayor essentially wants to dismantle the #1 attraction that brings tourism dollars into Harrisburg, showing how short-sighted the mayor is being based on his personal vendetta against former Mayor Stephen Reed.
