I did not realize that this was more than a Civil War Cemetery.

“Beautiful & a Reality Check re: the many who sacraficed for freedom”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

Beautiful setting & monuments. There was a very tranquil yet somber feeling when walking around the cemetery. The enormity of all those who lost their lives is poignant. There are so many graves marked "Unknown" which was particularly sad to me. It was educational for my children and myself. I felt truly connected to our history when visiting here. A must see when visiting Gettysburg. Also pretty neat to walk around where Lincoln once also walked around.

“Memorable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

Try to walk through the cemetery early, as the calm atmosphere and rising sun made the experience awe inspiring. To see the unmarked graves of these brave soldiers gave me chills, and reflect about their sacrifice.

“Visiting History”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

I loved being able to walk where President Lincoln walked, stand where President Lincoln gave the Gettysburg Address. Everyone should bring their children here to learn about the history of this great nation and pay your respects to the brave soldiers that gave their lives for freedom and to preserve the Union.
