KKK group to rally at Gettysburg

Posted: Updated:

A Maryland-based Ku Klux Klan group has been issued a permit to rally this weekend at Gettysburg National Military Park.

National Park Service spokeswoman Katie Lawhon said the Confederate White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan was issued a permit last week to gather on the Gettysburg battlefield Saturday from noon to 3 p.m.

The Baltimore-based group previously planned to rally at the battlefield Oct. 5, but all permits for special events were later rescinded because of the federal government shutdown.

The group has been protesting U.S. immigration policies and the administration of President Barack Obama.
