One hundred and fifty-four years after his death, Thaddeus Stevens is getting the statue in Gettysburg he so richly deserves.

Paid for by the Thaddeus Stevens Society, the six-foot bronze statue will be dedicated Saturday, April 2, in a free, public event in front of the Adams County Courthouse, 111 Baltimore St.

Ross Hetrick is president of the Thaddeus Stevens Society.
