History buff or not, this is a very powerful place to visit and pay respects. It really helps one understand what happened and the high price paid for our nation.

We took a group of scouts to the cemetery. It was very beautiful and provided increased perspective for the loss of life that ensued in the pursuit of freedom.

Very sombering, but educational. We took the History Nerds Tour that was just awesome. You will ride on an air conditioned bus with leather seating and great tour guides.

An experience like no other. To learn the history behind this place, and to walk through it, taking in the feel, the sounds, the somberness... To have my young children attentive and asking questions, it's clear that the ranger that we had did a great job.

The national cemetery is a beautiful last resting place. Gettysburg has taken care and was cleaning monuments while we were there. Very peaceful and well laid out. Site of the Gettysburg address. Stop and pay your respects- they also have guided walks through the cemetery more information on that at the visitors center.

So much to see. Definitely worth seeing at least once. Tours are better but take longer. Some things you can't see unless you're on a tour.
