Owner description: The Battle of Gettysburg was a turning point in the Civil War, 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".

This is a national "must see" historic landmark. Devil's Den is particularly cool

“You REALLY need to be a civil war buff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2012

Other than the movie, you walk of drive around farmland listening to an audio tape about a battle that was a very important part of history, but for most a bit boring.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2012

Even if you're not a history buff, you will enjoy Gettysburg. It's amazing what these men and women endured. The guides are exceptionally knowledgable.
