“A must-see for Americans”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

A fitting end to your battlefield tour. Very solemn and humbling, even 150 years later. You see where Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address, surrounded by the graves of Civil War soldiers. I still felt saddened for the soldiers of my home state, New Jersey, despite the passage of time. Don't miss.

“Historic and sobering”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

A must see for everyone visiting Gettysburg. I've been to this cemetery for memorial purposes and it can be very moving. I don't know if they still do, but they used to have a ceremony with luminaries for each death. It took my breath away.

“Site of the Gettysburg Address”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

President Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg address here as part of the dedication of the Soldiers National Cemetery. Lincoln was not the featured speaker but ironically hardly anyone remembers the other guy (Edward Everett) who spoke for two hours after Lincoln delivered his enduring three minute address. Today the cemetery remains a solemn place to remember the many heroes that sacrificed and fell during the horrific battle to preserve the union. The cemetery is located across the road from the old visitors center where one can park to see the understated memorial to Lincoln and the Gettysburg Address and one large monument in the center – the focus is on those that fell.

“Spend an Hour”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

A visit to the first national cemetery, resting place for thousands of our heroes and the scene of Licoln's Gettysburg Address, is a must if you are in the area.
Take an hour or less to walk through this hallowed ground and get a sense of the sacrifice and history that surrounds this place.
