Proposed changes to the Superintendent’s Compendium

The National Park Service (NPS) is pleased to provide the public with an opportunity to provide input on proposed changes to the Superintendent’s Compendium for Gettysburg National Military Park and Eisenhower National Historic Site.

The Superintendent’s Compendium is the summary of park specific rules implemented under Title 36 Code of Federal Regulations (36 CFR). The regulations contained in 36 CFR are the basic mechanism used by the National Park Service to preserve and protect the natural and cultural resources of the park and to protect visitors and property within the park. The Compendium is updated at least annually and serves as public notice related to designations, closures, permit requirements and other restrictions adopted under the Superintendent’s discretionary authority. The Superintendent’s Compendium does not repeat regulations found in 36 CFR and other United States Code and CFR Titles, which are enforced without further elaboration at the park level.

  • Born and raised in a house right next to the battlefield on the Baltimore Pike that served as a hospital ,I’m very attuned to the activities that take place in town and on the battlefield. We need to be able to take pride and full advantage of the beauty, history, fresh air and FUN times on this solemn ground. The area is and has been wonderful for attracting people to get together for exercise fresh air, comradery , fund raisers and to experience what the “locals” have come to love and appreciate
    Please reconsider banning activities on the battlefield, especially during these times, where we need to get out ,move and appreciate what happened here and why we do want people to appreciate the beauty and solace of these woods,fields,rocks and wildlife. Thanks for listening
