Overview

The Battle of Gettysburg, a turning point in the Civil War, was 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."

The museum and cyclorama were the best we’ve seen on our Civil War Adventure but they pale in comparison to our guided car tour with Jerry Hahn. We took the 2 hour tour and had the pleasure of getting Jerry for our guide. Personable, knowledgeable,...More

I love Gettysburg Natl Military Park. Make sure to hit up the visitors center. The video and cyclorama are well worth the $15 to get you a basic understanding of the battle. Then book yourself a private licensed battlefield guides tour. You won’t regret it!
