Stand where Lincoln gave the Gettysburg address. See the unknown grave markers, just a number. I'm from the South but this was still moving for me.

Attended a free guided tour with a NPS Ranger. A great experience and we learned so much about the cemetery and its dedication ceremony where Lincoln gave the Gettysburg Address.

This was a very sombering place to visit. However, I highly recommend the stop. It was very cool to walk in the same steps as Abraham Lincoln once did and stand in the spot where he gave his famous Gettysburg Address!

Gettysburg Museum was really good and should be seen first as we did. It's $14 for adults which gets you the movie, cyclorama and museum collection. The park is free and there are so many monuments to stop and see. Plan on a... More

Since l do not have a pet that travels with us I am not sure. Like most places l have seen some on leashes. My husband just informed me that the cemetery does not allow pets
