I would recommend this to all Americans. There is a self guided Auto Tour that you can take at your own pace. There are over 1300 monuments on the battlefield. Park Rangers give guided tours and are very knowledgable and interesting. We took a picnic lunch and ate under the shade of a tree near the battlefield. I'm from Missouri and have always wanted to visit this crucial Civil War site, and after seeing it, I only wish I'd have gotten here sooner. It is free, the only cost involved is if you want to see the movies of the battle at the Visitor center. Don't let it fool you, the museum looks like you have to pay to go see it, but that is just because it's by the movie theatre area. If you plan to see the Cyclodrama, do it before your tour of the battlefield, so you'll be well prepared to understand the locations of the battle and how it unfolded.
