To honor the war dead....(people from many wars are buried here) is good for your soul. It makes us realize that there are many who gave the supreme sacrifice for what they believed. Walking here is walking with history, and is a very powerful experience.

A very solemn and historic place. Good experience to see the sacrifices made for freedom. It was also the spot for The Gettysburg Address.

Visit the place where President Lincoln presented his Gettysburg Address. This site has a lot of history in the cemetery that one needs to see and experience. Incredible the history here! Great example of why we have Dogtags now for our soldiers.

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
