'Good Morning America' to broadcast live from Harpers Ferry

September 10, 2008

HARPERS FERRY, W.Va. (AP) -- ABC's "Good Morning America" is coming to Harpers Ferry National Historical Park next week.

The national news show will broadcast from the park on Sept. 18 during its whistle-stop train tour. The tour is part of the "50 States in 50 Days" project that leads up to the November 4 presidential election.

Park spokeswoman Marsha Wassel says that while the broadcast will focus more on the election, she's sure that some of the history of the park and the town will be highlighted.

That history includes John Brown's ill-fated 1859 raid on a federal arsenal and a 1906 meeting of the Niagara movement that led to the establishment of the NAACP.
