GETTYSBURG, Pa. -- People in Gettysburg are coming together in the spirit of unity.

Crowds gathered on Sunday for the unveiling of 'Unity Park' on Lefever Street.

The goal of the park is for visitors to focus on unity, peace, and healing our country.

'Unity Park' is the undertaking of Andrew Adam, an Eagle Scout Candidate from Mechanicsburg, who worked on the project for more than two years.

With the help of businesses and organizations from both the North and South, he raised about $200,000 dollars to make his dream for this park a reality.

It features interactive education boards and unity benches.

But the centerpiece is a bronze statue of a drummer boy, sculpted in the North, resting on a granite pedestal mined and delivered from the South.

The sculpture is dedicated to the musicians and young people who have served our country.
