Site of the Gettysburg address with a nice monument on the address and Lincoln. the graves (marked and unmarked) make you pause and reflect on what the fighting was all about. The Kentucky and a New York monument are also in the cemetery.

A great place to walk & meditate about the battle that took place on these hallowed grounds, the price of freedom and the lives of those who died for our us so that it that still lives on today. It's interesting to walk this cemetery and see the various monuments, as well as the spot where Abraham Lincoln gave his... More

We joined a tour given by a NPS ranger, which was very informative. As you would expect, this is a very well kept cemetery, rows of white headstones with US flags, some with names and some unknown soldiers. These days the cemetery is split into military and civilian sections with iron railings separating the two. The ranger told us stories... More

Stop here to see where Lincoln gave the Gettysburg Address. View the graves of the unknown soldiers and notice the pennies placed on each. Wonderful stop to honor those that died during the Battle of Gettysburg.

Beautiful and peaceful place that tells a story about our fallen soldiers. Each section has a quote or a statute to learn from.

I was stunned by the absolute beauty and peacefulness of the surroundings and the well planned and laid out grounds. Row after row of headstones with stories to tell of heroes who gave all for their country as well as those who served and died of natural causes, but heroes just the same. One could spend a week in there... More

This was a really powerful place to visit. The cemetery contains the spot where Lincoln gave the Gettysburg address and the grave of thousands of soldiers who gave their live for something they believed in. The current map of the site points you to a car park that's being developed. You can now park in a grass field next to... More

We almost skipped this - a cemetery? But I wanted to see where Lincoln stood to deliver the Gettysburg Address (Spoiler alert - they don't really know exactly where he was and it may have been in a private area of the cemetery) BUT the power of the stones - especially the many "unknown" ones was incredible. The number of... More
