“History is my hobby”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

I have been to Gettysburg Battlefield many times, and expect to go many more. However, if you are not a history buff, it probably only rates a 3, although is does provides some lovely vistas.

“Awe inspiring”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Such an awe inspiring place. So hard to believe so many men fought so hard for their convictions. It truly is an incredible lesson for the next generation.

Excellent place to visit and to learn. I think the NPS does an excellent job with maintaining these Battlefields.

“Air Con Tour Bus with Guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Well worth doing and our tour guide made things so interesting and was so knowledgable. We stopped at significant places during the tour and got off the bus where our guide gave a talk on that specific area. My husband loved this tour as he has an interest in the American Civil War and I have to say that I found it very interesting too.

“A must visit place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Have visited the National Park a few times. Seems that they are started to charge for the museum. Sad to say that the new visitor center is not as good as the old. The old center was just about the battle while the new one covers all the war along with being a little too PC. Be sure to take water with you as you walk the field.
