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."

While driving through the park is free, visiting the museum, the movie, and the cyclorama have a fee. Unfortunately, the Senior Pass or other NPS passes cannot be used. Having said that, it is worth paying the admission fee for these. The museum is filled...More

As Lincoln said, this is "hallowed ground". Take your time, let it sink in, and your breath will be taken away. Having a guide is extremely helpful, but don't stop there. After touring with a guide, go back on your own and take your time....More

We watched the movie and viewed the cyclorama before touring the museum and the battlefield. That was a good way to sequence the various events at this facility. The movie and cyclorama are informative and sobering. It’s hard to imagine that much death occurred at...More

Diffentley Hollow Ground. Wonderful history, I could spend days here and not see everything. Cyclorama is one of a kind, a must see.

I'm not a Civil War buff but this was a great tour. We took a guided tour from the museum. The certified guide was very knowledgeable. He was entertaining. We learned a lot and saw where it happened. I would do this again.
