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!

Make sure to walk the National Cemetery with a Park Ranger or park docent. The stories of the men buried there are very moving. If possible plan to be there on an evening when taps are played at sunset. It is poignant.

We spent about an hour walking this cemetery. It overlooks the town. It's large, peaceful and interesting.

I'm not a fan of soldier cemeteries open for fandom. I prefer to let them rest in peace but the national parks service seems to love it. It's a bit of Stroll and nice pieces.

The national cemetery is a must see while in Gettysburg. To see where Lincoln gave his famous speech and walk in the steps of many of our presidents just can't be explained until you've experienced it for yourself. Also the humble feelings you have as...More

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
