The Battle of Gettysburg was a turning point in the Civil War, the Union victory that ended General Robert E. Lee's second and most ambitious invasion of the North. Often referred to as the "High Water Mark of the Rebellion", Gettysburg was the Civil War's bloodiest battle and was also the inspiration for President Abraham Lincoln's immortal "Gettysburg Address".

Gettysburg has always been on my list of must-see attractions, but I found myself wishing I had allotted more than one day for this site. I would recommend taking a guided tour, and allowing yourself plenty of time to walk the site. Staying in town will be a must for me on my next time through!

Gettysburg has always been on my list of "Must See" places for as long as I first heard Lincoln's Gettyburg Address as a child. Even though it took me almost 40 years to make the trip, it surpassed all of my expectations. Everything associated with the National Military Park is done with a reverence as to what took place there... More

I had the opportunity to take several friends from the west cost to this magnificent national landmark. Not only were they in awe by the deep history but by the story that it tells. The self driving tour gives you plenty of time to take in this period in history and you can feel the soul of the battlefield. Great... More
