Stopping by Lincoln's last stop before his address steps one back a lot of years. He finished the address in his bed room. Enjoy the history.

Lincoln stayed at the David Wills House the evening before the Gettysburg Address. The site offers a great video on each floor with additional information. It was a quick visit, but definitely worth a stop while at Gettysburg.

The gentleman and woman working the afternoon we visited were dressed in period costumes, and we're both extremely knowledgable. You could just tell they both had a real passion for what they do. Lincoln's bedroom was like stepping back in time. Worth the donation!

If you really want to read, see, and listen to everything the museum has to offer, I would say 11/2 to 2 hours.
