    The visitor center movie and cyclorama are awesome. Gives you good start for your auto self guided tour. So much to see throughout the battlefield.

    This place is so amazing. It's an emotional experience to stand on Little Round Top and think about all that happened in this small town. Don't pass up any opportunity to go there.

    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

    Gorgeous new space for the Visitor Center but don't eat here - it was $6 for a very tiny fountain soda and glass of water. Food is wayyy over priced.
