Have always wanted to see Gettysburg. Amazing to see the site where the Gettysburg Address was given and that so many died on this field. If you want to see and feel a part of the war then you can definitely do this at the park. Was told you would get a strong feeling by just being on this site... More

I have no words to truly describe this whole trip. I was awestruck by the amount of bodies that fought here and the many unknown. The cemetery grounds are well kept and easy for walking.

We were there the night of the commemoration of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. The whole cemetery was light with luminaries. it was extremely beautiful. There was reenactments of the changing of soldiers.

We spent a good three hours watching the movie, seeing the diorama and going through the museum at the new visitors center. What I liked most was that it personalized the Civil War and the battle through quotes from real people, both dignitaries and ordinary citizens. I felt they helped to paint the picture of the human toll the war... More

We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed visiting all the memorials. My husband is a history buff. It is amazing to know that these are the same grounds that the huge civil war battle was fought on.

You will need several days to grasp the history preserved in the park. Everything was well kept, restrooms were available and many ways to learn the history of the battle. I did a driving tour and also hired a guide for part of my stay. Wonderful experience. Check for programs offered during your stay. There is a large variety "in... More

We had a guide who took our group around the battlefields in our van. It cost about $12 per person (the dog was free). Best deal ever.

There is so much rich history here that you really need to take your time and absorb all you can; don't just try to rush through in an hour just to say you were here. There are a variety of ways to see the battlefield - self-guided, horseback, or even a tour guide service that uses either your own vehicle... More

You can't think of Gettysburg without thinking of the Gettysburg address and Abraham Lincoln. My husband is the civil war buff and I never was interested in going, but decided to go to some place that he wanted. I was moved and pleasantly surprised that I did enjoy learning, and I did enjoy walking in such an historic place.
