John Wilkes Booth Bobbleheads No Longer Available At Gettysburg Gift Shop
Stories like these just leave me shaking my head. I guess I'm not the only one. Finally less shaky heads have prevailed and the Gettysburg Battlefield gift shop has agreed to stop selling John Wilkes Booth bobblehead figures.
We got the scoop from NBC 4 in Washington D.C. The kitschy dolls had only been on sale for a week in the Gettysburg National Military Park visitors' center bookstore before a reporter from Hanover, Pennsylvania's Evening Sun Newspaper made an iquiry. And that was all she bobbled.
"On rare occasions, there's an item that might cause concern, and obviously the bobbleheads appeared to be doing that," Gettysburg Foundation spokeswoman Dru Anne Neil said Tuesday.
