    Must start by visiting the cyclorama, film and museum at the visitor center. Then audio or guided tour is the battlefields. An amazing slice of dramatic history !

    Watch the movie at the visitors center and look at the movement maps to get a better idea of directions on the field when you reach them. 1 monument marks 300 union troops

    2015 marks the 100th anniversary of Licensed Battlefield Guides at Gettysburg, which means licensed guides can take you on a personal two-hour tour of the Gettysburg Battlefield by car or by bus.

    In 1863, in this small town in southern Pennsylvania, something happened that profoundly influenced our country's development and shaped our national character.

    The certified guide service was fantastic. Having the guide drive us around and describe the battle chronologically was ideal. Much better than a bus or a self-guided audio tour.

    Buy the self tour CD in the gift shop. You can listen to it in your car while you tour the battlefields at your own pace!

    Do the driving tour first. Then visit the museum when all the buses and tour groups are gone - usually after 1pm.

    Search for "Civil War music" on your Spotify, Rdio etc. and add some tunes to the tour.
