After about a week of stocking John Wilkes Booth bobbleheads the Gettysburg National Park Museum decided to pull the controversial dolls off their shelves.
The Museum decided to pull the bobblehead caricatures of Abraham Lincoln’s assassin after a local reporter started asking questions.
Gettysburg Foundation spokeswoman Dru Anne Neil said “The item was inappropriate, and we should pull the item from the shelves.
The dolls were purchased through a distributor for BobbleHead LLC, a company which prides itself in its unique bobblehead toys:
“When we make a bobblehead, we want to make sure that when we’re making it we’re the only ones that are making it,” said Matt Powers, sales manager for BobbleHead LLC.
BobbleHead LLC’s bobblehead dolls include the “You Betcha” Sarah Palin, which sports a rifle and other figures ranging from Fidel Castro to Joe the Plumber to the Great Sphinx of Giza, Charles Darwin and Chuck Long.
