A must see while you are touring Gettysburg. Seeing where President Lincoln gave his Gettysburg Address was amazing. Many markers with names but many more unknowns. A beautiful final resting place for these brave soldiers.

The Gettysburg National Cemetery is a truly humbling place. The grounds are cared for meticulously. It was surreal to stop by the place where Lincoln gave the Gettysburg address.

Don't miss visiting this solemn place when in Gettysburg. It is easy to park on the street and a very short walk to the great monument and likely location of President Lincoln's address. Read about it on-line before your visit so you can understand the layout and the incredible feat of the community to bring this cemetery into being.

This is the "final resting place" where Lincoln came, and gave his Gettysburg Address. We found it difficult to ascertain exactly where he stood when he gave the speech. There are markers, but none on the exactly spot. Most say, "300 yards from here," or something similar. It seems as though Lincon was stood on a temporary structure when he... More

This is the spot where Lincoln gave the Gettysburg Address. Need I say more? I don't think I can give a review better than what the man said here.

This is a great (free) stop on anyone's visit to the area. Beautifully maintained with plenty of benches for resting and taking it all in.
