Overview

The Battle of Gettysburg, a turning point in the Civil War, was 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 did a guided bus tour out of the visitors center. It was very educational and you can really feel the weight of what happened when you stand on the battlefield.

Visiting this place should be a rite of passage for any Americans, as this decisive battle effectively ended Lee's campaign to overtake the North, essentially becoming the "beginning of the end" for the Southern army. This should always be a place to be respected, not...More
