Quote:
As a Dutchman, I have seen a lot of things about places of war, like Bergen-Belsen in Germany.

This was a unique experience to see what had happened these 3 days of the Civil War, which was also the turning point of the war.

I recommend:

All the statues, like General Lee, General Bufford, and many more
The Cavalry Cannons used at Gettysburg
The soldiers commemorating those who died (54,000) on monuments like Pennsylvania Monument

I didn’t have time to see more about the Battle of Gettysburg because our journey goes on to Washington, D.C.
