Ronn Palm's Museum of Civil War Images is a must-see if you're visiting Gettysburg. Ronn has carefully and professionally curated his renowned collection of Civil War photography into a moving display focused on the soldiers who served with several Pennsylvania regiments. Seeing the actual "faces of war" in Ronn's museum stands in moving contrast to the stone sentinels that dot the battlefield itself. It's also a great primer on the arms and equipage of the common fighting man. While you could tour the entire display pretty quickly, I reccomend you take your time and chat with Ronn, who is incredibly knowledgable and friendly. Civil War photography is now prominently featured at places like the Library of Congress and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, but the best collection in the country might be right under your nose in Gettysburg! Be sure to check the hours of operation carefully prior to a visit, because availability is limited. Highly reccomended.
