'Old Baldy' horse head going back up in Philly

In this file photo from Feb. 28, 2003 the mounted head of Old Baldy, the war horse of Gen. George Meade, is seen with some of Meade's effects at the Civil War Library and Museum in Philadelphia. The warhorse's preserved head was the subject of a battle between two city museums that both claimed ownership. A deal has been reached that allows the Grand Army of the Republic Museum and the Civil War Museum to share Old Baldy. He could arrive at the Grand Army museum this month. ((AP Photo/Chris Gardner))
