Great guided tour
Jun 2021
My wife and I visited the Gettysburg National Cemetery at 5:30 pm in June and were met by a tour guide there. Even though it was raining and we were the only two there, she took us on a tour of the cemetery that was amazing. She was extremely informative about its history and peppered in numerous interesting stories about individual soldiers buried there. The stories were poignant and often funny and sad at the same time. It was a very moving experience as the last story revolved around a direct relative of her husband who died in the battle just shy of his 20th birthday
We learned a lot about the cemetery and of course The Address, and she was incredibly patient with our questions. We highly recommend the tour if you are there at 5:30

A very peaceful and interesting place
Apr 2021
I visited the Gettysburg National Cemetery twice during my visit to Gettysburg in April. There is a monument to and a statue of Abraham Lincoln and the words of the Gettysburg Address. The Soldiers Monument marks the spot where Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address later in the year 1863. Somewhere, there was also a photo of Lincoln giving the Gettysburg address which was really interesting. Another monument is the New York monument and also there are all the graves of unknown soldiers - rows and rows of headstones. It was a very peaceful and interesting place to walk around.

Don't miss the guided tours!
May 2021
We visited the cemetery on May 21st around 5:30 and were pleasantly surprised to learn about a free 45-minute tour that was about to start. The certified tour guide (I think his name was Rob Abbott) was thoroughly versed in the history of the cemetery and battle. He added a LOT of depth to our understanding of the events in Gettysburg.

2 minutes in history
Apr 2021 • Family
This is a spot of great importance. Many of the known and unknown solders from the civil war are buried here along with area residents who served in WWI and WWII. Along with this, there is a monument at about the place where President Lincoln gave the Gettysburg Address which lasted about 2 minutes.

Full of Civil War history
Nov 2020
This place offers full memory and full history of the U.S. Civil war. In addition to learning the history, the view from top of the hill gives visitor the full imagination of the war during that time. A must stop when visiting Gettysburg.

Very nice and amazing place to see. So sad that the younger people have no respect for a final resting place for so many. People should have more control of their children instead of letting them run amuck in a national cemetery!

Take your time to absorb the experience.
Nov 2020
This is a peaceful place to walk and remember the brave soldiers that gave their lives in the most important battle of the Civil War. You will be steps away from where President Lincoln delivered his famous speech.
