Hollowed ground, indeed. Visited on Memorial Day - beautiful service and commemoration. If you visit Gettysburg and don't come here, you miss a significant part of this battle.

We were visiting Gettyburg for the first time and wanted to do it on our own to take our time. We happened upon a young man tour guide playing a union soldier who was mesmerizing. He was so good and had us all in tears with his speech and the delivery of his words along with his real tears. He should be on Broadway, no kidding! Such a serene place to recall what happened so many years ago.

I would recommend everyone pay their respects at The Soldiers National Cemetery at Gettysburg. It took us a little under an hour, and it was the last place on our audio tour. Prior to entering, we listened to the Gettysburg Address. I think this added to the experience. It allowed me to reflect on the historic significance of this location.

Every American, and every foreign visitor, should walk through the cemetery. It makes the sacrifice real to see the long rows of simple white markers, many of them with just a number instead of name.

The cemetery is a peaceful beautiful place, but what brought it to life for us, and made us realize that we were looking at the resting place of thousands of people who died here - was an interpreter - he played the role of "Mickey" a union soldier from Wisconsin, returning to pay his respects to the fallen in his regiment. "Mickey" was a real person who fought, and this actor used his story and others from the regiment to tell the stories of some of the fallen. He obviously loves what he does and we were mesmerized.
