The Mason-Dixon Line is the best known and least understood boundary in the world, and a class offered at the Gettysburg Campus of HACC, Central Pennsylvania's Community College, will tell the real story behind it.

Mason-Dixon Line will be offered at the campus on Wednesday, Oct. 5, 7-9 p.m. Cost is $20. Although it is best known as the divider between North and South and freedom and slavery, its origins have nothing to do with slavery and actually go back to before America was a nation.

Participants will learn how the Mason-Dixon Line became famous and how to visit this national landmark.

The class will be taught by William Ecenbarger, a freelance writer and a former staff member for the Philadelphia Inquirer and a contributing editor to Reader's Digest.

Ecenbarger was part of a team that won a Pulitzer Prize in 1979 and author of Walking the Line, the definitive book on the Mason Dixon Line.

Registration and information is available by accessing HACC's Community Education Center's Autumn 2005 Schedule of Noncredit Classes at the Website below. Information also may be obtained by calling the Gettysburg Campus of HACC at 717-338-1010.
