    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.

    Free of charge, explore historical battlefields, Soldier’s National Cemetery and the David Wills House, where President Lincoln put the finishing touches on the Gettysburg Address.

    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

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

    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.

    A great place to learn about the Battle of Gettysburg and the significant role it had on the Civil War. I recommend the mini documentary narrated by Morgan Freeman and the Cyclorama-truly beautiful.

    Gettysburg is one of my all time favorite places to visit. It's a great American Memorial to all that lost their lives here, North or South. Everyone should read about the Civil War and visit here.

    After exploring inside, have a seat with the 16th president, Abraham Lincoln, read the Gettysburg Address on the nearby rock, and absorb the history that happened here July 1st through 3rd in 1863.
