Overview

The Battle of Gettysburg, a turning point in the Civil War, was the Union victory that ended General Robert E. Lee's second and most ambitious invasion of the North. Often referred to as the "High Water Mark of the Rebellion," Gettysburg was the Civil War's bloodiest battle and was also the inspiration for President Abraham Lincoln's immortal "Gettysburg Address."

we went back to the park this past Saturday. As a civil war buff it is a must see area. It has something for everyone, history lover or just tourist. The ghost tours are my favorite.
