Gettysburg National Military Park and Cemetery

Attraction | "Gettysburg National Battlefield"

The battlefield at Gettysburg is really neat, containing over 1,400 monuments. To think of how many lives were lost in the three-day battle saddens and humbles one as they look around. The park offers several guided hikes and tours. Films and ranger-led programs are also available. On July 1-3, there will be a reenactment here in Gettysburg. The cemetery walk is very interesting also. See the place where Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address. WONDERFUL!
