“must see”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

if there is one place in Gettysburg to see, this is it. very well kept. very serene and full of history. just think of all that was lost by these very brave men. what might have been if they survived this great battle. easy to get to and well worth your time.

“Exceeded All Expectations”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

This park is rich with historical and artistic significance. We had an amazing tour guide, Troy Harman, who broke down the Gettysburg Address and the architecture of the cemetery. The tour was scheduled for 35 minutes, but he happily obliged the group's interest and spoke for an hour and a half. His passion for the subject matter had each of us hanging on every word. Even those in our party who were less enthusiastic about history were blown away by the experience. I cannot recommend this park strongly enough.

“Special”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

Very inspirational and historical site. Within walking distance of where we stayed. Just imaging that Lincoln spoke here brought the history to life.

“Beautiful, sobering setting”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

Strolling through this beautiful cemetery on a crisp fall day and looking at all the burial markers of both known and unknown soldiers who lost their lives made us so thankful for their sacrifice.
