Shutdown cancels KKK rally at Gettysburg

Posted: Updated:

Gettysburg National Military Park has rescinded all permits for special events because of the federal government shutdown, including a demonstration planned for this weekend by a Maryland-based KKK group.

Park spokeswoman Katie Lawhon said a demonstration Saturday by the Confederate White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan has been canceled.

The group had received a special use permit to gather on the lawn north of Meade's Headquarters along Taneytown Road.
