SHARPSBURG - Sharpsburg officials have gotten several letters from around the country lauding them for protecting the area and not commercializing it, Mayor George Kesler said Monday. The letters were in reaction to an Associated Press article about Town Council members deciding not to join the Civil War Heritage Area. The story ran in several papers across the country. The council reversed its decision last month, voting 5-1 to endorse an application for a proposed Civil War Heritage Area, but the town may withdraw later.
