They have the tourism part covered

When American Public Media reports on preparation for the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, it's done on the Marketplace show.

You can predict the launching point for the program: "... states that were in the thick of the fighting are planning now to cash in on what they hope will be a boom in tourism..."

The heritage tourist - that's you - is a prize duck with no spending discipline: "the heritage tourist has really become kind of the darling of the tourism industry."

Tourism officials spout the usual mix of avarice and ignorance: "With help from the National Park's logo, town leaders expect the number of [Franklin] visitors to jump from 40,000 per year to more than 200,000."

The only thing missing here is the heritage.
