For about a week, visitors to the Gettysburg battlefield could pick up a unique souvenir: a bobblehead doll not of Abraham Lincoln, but of his assassin, John Wilkes Booth. But now the item is gone from the museum store’s shelves.

Officials at the Gettysburg National Park Museum gave the doll a second thought after a local reporter started asking questions.

“The item was inappropriate, and we should pull the item from the shelves,” says Gettysburg Foundation spokeswoman Dru Anne Neil.

    Oh fer cryin out loud.Who even cares that Abraham Lincoln was shot? He suspended the constitution,he killed and jailed political opponents and his’ war killed hundreds of thousands of AMERICANS.I heard a rumor that Booth killed Abe cause Abe fancied the notion of sending all of the former black slaves back to Africa.If that’s the case,why is the black girl complaining.I guess we whiteys have to be whipped and have to bow to any black critisism.Is it ever gonna be over.Lot’s of whiteboys died and were maimed to free them.Lot’s of welfare,reverse discrimination and wealth redistribution should have evened things out by now.I’m a whiteguy whose family wasn’t even in America till the 1930s or 40s and i’m a notherner.White people,yellow people,brown people and red people were oppressed and slaves too.Semms that blacks think that they were the only slaves in history.Just like jews think they were the only group of people who were massacred or had suffered from genocide.I don’t see any harm in a John wilkes Booth bobblehead doll,who the hell cares? Some whacked out black chick who doesn’t know history.
