Well designed, although the military part of the cemetery also included tombstones from more recently deceased people. Some info provided but there could have been more.

Why would anyone come to Gettysburg and not visit the cemetery is beyond me. This cemetery is the reason the entire town is historic. The entire place is awesome. I spent hours in the cemetery.

Stopped here during our visit to Gettysburg. Very well taken care of and the reverence for the fallen is certainly appreciated.

Visiting the cemetery was a sobering experience. There are many unidentified graves that are marked only by a number. Upon entry, signage requests silence as respect for those buried here.

Here is a place where Lincoln walked and gave his famous speech. You can walk among those who gave their lives fighting for a cause they believed in.

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
