This is part of our history and should not be missed. Well worth it. So many lives were lost and changed forever.

This was my 3rd trip in 5 years. I learn more every time I visit. This time I could hear the ghosts at dusk on Cemetery Hill. This is a huge battlefield and 3 day battle. Try to do your history before you go and it will be so much better.

The National Military Park in Gettysburg is a can't-miss for families. I visited almost 10 years ago with a group from work but didn't get as much out of it as I did this time, when I did my own research AND had the chance to visit the new visitor center, which is awesome (will review separately). Definitely GO, but... More

It's a massive and moving hitsorical battlesite that will put the Civil War into perspective for all. My entire fmaily visited and we learned a lot about the battle and took the tour of the battle sites. It's much bigger than most folks realize. I would suggest watching the movie Gettysburge before you go, because it was filmed on-site.

This is an obvious place to visit when in Gettysburg! Whether you are a ghost hunter or a history enthusiast you must take the guided tour (preferably with their guides) to get the full scope of what happened there. I took the bus guided tour and I felt he gave a very well rounded explanation of what happened. The people... More

Get the detailed picture of a true turning point in American history. Over 1400 monuments, many placed by the actual veterans of the Civil war. The care that has been given to this place is wonderful. Personally I felt spirit of those who lived and fought here. Take a tour! The guide from the visitor's center was incredible. Felt like...

Very nice, very well done. I would highly recommend reserving a private guide for the tour. The guide will drive your car and you will receive extensive information about the battle of Gettysburg. Everything that is inside is also wonderful.

We spent an afternoon here. Viewed both the movie and cyclorama, which was very neat. We did the 2 hour tour guide driving our car. Very knowledgeable of the 3 day battle that took place. Very much in awe of what took place back then.

Nice to be able to just wander around and stop whenever you like to take in the sites. Next time would love to take the tour on horses.
