“So sad”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

Beautifully landscaped, but very sad to see how many men lost their lives. Many are marked "unknown".

“quite, and nice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

great place to go and show respect or look for loved ones who may have fought the battle. however, I recommend not bringing children, as they will get bored fast.

“Quite Moving!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

It's here that can be found Lincoln Speech Memorial, as well as the burial of numerous unknown soldiers who died during the battles in Gettysburg. Some of them were able to be identified and their names are indicated on their tomb. This cemetery also contains tombs of soldiers from other wars. It makes us realize the cost it took during the Civil War. Quite moving!

“Pristine and relevant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

We toured this site at the end of our battlefield tour. We saved it for last (were leaving next day) and so glad we did not skip it. Beautiful trees, peaceful, and a step back in time. The soldier in period dress at the front greets you and sets the tone. It's not just another cemetery and doesn't take too long to visit.

“Very moving experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

To realize you are standing very close to the spot Abraham Lincoln gave his address is humbling. The interpreters did an excellent job bringing to life the experience. Don't bring your dog with you, they are understandably not allowed in the cemetary.
