On February 26, the 2nd annual Gettysburg Conservative Conference was held in the ballroom of Gettysburg College, a few paces from the historic civil war battlefields. Organized and hosted by the College Republicans and other conservative students on campus, the event attracted students throughout the state.
Many speakers addressed the gathering. Catholic University of America professor Lee Edwards, Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) president David French, and former U.S. Congressman Pat Toomey delivered striking presentations.
TFP Student Action was invited to have a table at the event to display its books and publications. Students showed special interest in the TFP's ongoing activities on college campuses to promote traditional moral values, and oppose the cultural revolution. Petitions to President Bush were also collected in support of the Marriage Protection Amendment.
TFP volunteers were happy to attend this conference and are grateful to the College Republicans at Gettysburg College for the invitation.
