Tom, you got it right indeed.

Recently on a weekday afternoon I was the only visitor in the Visitors Center at Manassas.  The young man behind the counter apologized that there was no ranger to take me on a guided tour.

"Budget cuts, you know," he growled.  "Gettysburg gets all the money."

"Yes," I answered, "and Gettysburg gets all the visitors."
