The Battle of Gettysburg was a turning point in the Civil War, 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".

Until you've seen other civil war battlefields you can't fully appreciate the amazing job they've done with preserving this history. It's a huge area and just full of great stories and amazing views. As a turning point in the war it is deserving of such an investment. While we drove through it you can also bike and hike to see... More

Accompanied a group of cub scouts to tour the Billy Yank portion of the area. This was a very sobering experience to actually see the battlefield as well as the field where Pickett's charge took place. Seeing the documentaries and reading could not actually do it justice. The day we visited was absolutely gorgeous; we did a picnic lunch at... More

This place is huge! You can easily spend days here! There are several walking and auto tours available that can be done on your own. But beware, they take some time! There's a lot to see from the seat of your car as well as from the ground level on your feet. The monuments are beautiful!

Everyone must come here at least once in their life to reflect upon what so many gave. It is truly hallowed ground and a shame more of it is lost every year.

I live minutes away from Shiloh National Military Park and love history, so visiting Gettysburg is always a pleasure. This is my fourth year in a row to get to drive around this hallowed ground. I'm moved every time I visit. There is always something new to see. With most of the leaves gone, I saw monuments and tablets that... More

One of the most significant sites in all of American history. Worth taking time to learn about the battle and then see the sites where this bitter struggle took place. I go here at least half a dozen times a year and it never gets old.

My 17 year old son drug us here. Wow! I should have come sooner. It was a great experience. We downloaded a free app to tour the battle. It was easy to follow along the three day battle highlights with the app. We used Google play, ios. to find the app. My son also used the free map from the... More

I walked up to witness the scene of the famous 'gettysburg address' and found the site to be both eerie and thought provoking, and in some ways very sad. The park ranger was excellent, and he gave me answers to all my questions.

This was a very interesting trip back in time in American history. We thoroughly enjoyed the museum, film, cyclorama and auto tour.
