The Battle of Gettysburg was a turning point in the Civil War, the Union victory that ended General Robert E. Lee's second and most ambitious invasion of the North. Often referred to as the "High Water Mark of the Rebellion", Gettysburg was the Civil War's bloodiest battle and was also the inspiration for President Abraham Lincoln's immortal "Gettysburg Address".

We took the bus tour throughout the park and we covered most of it. The place is huge, interesting and historical. We did get out only 1 time but there wasn't a lot of time to keep getting on/off the bus. The bus driver was a little bit scary. Thank goodness we were going slow. Nice piece of our history... More

I am not an historian, and it would be a stretch to say I sm a history buff. Maybe, I'm just a history tourist. But, I love Gettysburg. I have been visiting quite regularly, for 40 years. It is likely our country's best preserved battlefield park. It is breathtaking in it's sublime beauty. Taking in the park is very difficult... More

Gettysburg has always been on my list of must-see attractions, but I found myself wishing I had allotted more than one day for this site. I would recommend taking a guided tour, and allowing yourself plenty of time to walk the site. Staying in town will be a must for me on my next time through!

Gettysburg has always been on my list of "Must See" places for as long as I first heard Lincoln's Gettyburg Address as a child. Even though it took me almost 40 years to make the trip, it surpassed all of my expectations. Everything associated with the National Military Park is done with a reverence as to what took place there... More
