GETTYSBURG, Pa. (AP) -- Bidders are taking home a bit of history after an auction of memorabilia at a wax museum that has entertained visitors to Gettysburg for decades.

A figure of Abe Lincoln sold for $1,500, more than four times what someone paid for his assassin.
 
A large crowd was on hand for the sale of more than 300 exhibit items from the American Civil War Wax Museum.
 
The facility is undergoing a massive renovation and will reopen later this year as the Gettysburg Heritage Center.

Most of the life-sized figures are vinyl, rather than wax.

The paper says bidders paid about $1,000 each for reproductions of Gens. Robert E. Lee, Ulysses S. Grant and George Meade.History gets auctioned at Gettysburg museum event
