Gettysburg License Plates - benefiting monument repair and maintenance
Blue & Gold, “Gettysburg 1863” unofficial license plate.
The Pennsylvania Gettysburg Monuments Project created this plate that graces the fronts of many cars and trucks in Pennsylvania and elsewhere (Even Australia). These plates are still available at $20 each at the GBPA Storefront HQ at 33 York Street, Gettysburg.
Official PennDOT Monuments Preservation plate.
Enacted by the legislature and approved by the Governor in 2014, the preservation plate was first proposed in 1997 by state Rep. Harry Readshaw, founder of the Pa. Gettysburg Monuments Project. The Preservation license plate is designed to help preserve the state’s 146 monuments and markers on the Gettysburg battlefield.
The cost of the preservation license plate is be $54, not including the annual registration fee. From each special plate, $23 will go to a dedicated state fund to provide grants to nonprofit organizations to provide funds to the Gettysburg National Military Park to clean, repair and restore specific monuments proposed by the organization. This money will supplement the funds raised by the GBPA for the Pennsylvania Gettysburg Monuments Trust.
