Within a few short steps from the cemetery center is located the very place where the destroyer of the peaceful southern society, Abraham Lincoln offered his infamous Gettysburg Address. All the while the Confederate dead were ignored, and left to moulder wherever they fell. On these grounds are buried the remains of many Union fallen, as well as qualified later burials. The Park service often has programs to explain the history of the grounds, as well as stories regarding some indiviual soldiers buried within. These programs are free.
