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."

To do this area justice, you need several hours. We paid the $12 fee to watch the film and see the cyclorama as well as the comprehensive museum and it was well worth it to set the context for the battlefield itself but you can...More

Try to do it on a nice not too hot day. You can drive around but also you would want to walk around. I would like to take my grandkids there.

One of the best preserved Civil War battlefields in the US. Early in the morning or after the crowds one can feel the presence of the combatants. Great self guided tours. Finding a Ranger to a certified guide makes the experience even better. Allow for...More

Loved how so much of the land has been left as it was. Beautiful collection of statuary. I would recommend buying the auto tour discs or doing a guided tour to get the full benefit of its historical significance.

Allow at least an entire day. I was there for three. Andd if this is a first visit, get a licensed battle field guide. They will bring the park alive.
