Overview

The Battle of Gettysburg, a turning point in the Civil War, was the Union victory that ended General Robert E. Lee's second and most ambitious invasion of the North. Often referred to as the "High Water Mark of the Rebellion," Gettysburg was the Civil War's bloodiest battle and was also the inspiration for President Abraham Lincoln's immortal "Gettysburg Address."

Absolutely the most bittersweet, reverent battlefield I’ve ever been too. The museum is world class. The park pays tribute to the men who died. Make sure you visit the town

This Military Park is best seen with a private tour guide who can explain each of the monuments and their significance. Lots of information about everything in view making the history of the battle come alive.

This is by far my favorite battlefield museum. The setting was friendly and stress free. Gooses pot experience makes you understand how cruel the war was. We have leaned so much. And the new media curation makes the history refreshing and profound.
