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".

As a Civil War reenactor I especially enjoy going in my uniform and sitting on top of Little Round top and just listing to the sounds. I also enjoy talking to people who asked me about what it is like being a reenactor.

This our third visit to the military park. The last two trips were with teenage grandchildren, so it was a quick visit. This time we were able to take our time and really visit the museum and the battlefields.

I have been to Gettysburg numerous times and still love every visit. They have done a spectacular job over the years of trying to restore the entire battlefield to it's original appearance.

As long (or short) as you'd like. I'd give it at least two hours, assuming you will stop at a few spots and get out, plus you'll be reading signs or listening to the audio description (if you have an audio tour program... More
