Lovely place to reflect, particularly after a battlefield tour. Wreaths placed on all headstones for Christmas. Consult book _The Complete Gettysburg Experience_ for a tour based in the cemetery itself. Closes promptly at posted times.

The grounds are magnificently maintained and it is a very serene and sobering place. We had the pleasure of speaking with one of the park rangers who was a wealth of knowledge. It was like having a private tour!

It was beautiful, tree lined streets, quiet, solitude, beautiful monuments and a very tranquil place to be.

To be at the spot that President Lincoln Gave the Gettysburg Address, leaves one speechless. To see and read the tombstones...just brings to light the horrors of this war.This is a must see.

Gettysburg Museum was really good and should be seen first as we did. It's $14 for adults which gets you the movie, cyclorama and museum collection. The park is free and there are so many monuments to stop and see. Plan on a... More
