Gettysburg

There is no better way to learn about American history than by diving head first into the scene where one of the most important events that influenced the formation of the United States took place. The Battle of Gettysburg in July of 1863 took the lives of over 50,000 soldiers, and is known as the turning point of the American Civil War. It was during these three days that The United States began to gain leverage over the Confederates, leading to an eventual victory that would form our nation, as we know it today. The Gettysburg Battlefield is now a National Park open to all visitors to explore and learn about this vital historical event.


Gettysburg Tours

The Gettysburg Battlefield Licensed Guided Tour is a great combination of comfort and informative entertainment. A National Park Service Licensed guide will lead visitors on a two-hour tour of all the events that took place during the Battle of Gettysburg. All historical information will be given in vivid detail as you explore and visit the monuments and locations within the battlefield where the largest military engagement took place on United States soil. A tour of the battlefield is also offered on an open-air, double-decker tour bus.


Top Rated Gettysburg Attractions


While the park itself is the main attraction, there are other attractions and landmarks you cannot miss while visiting Gettysburg. Because the park is very extensive, it is most convenient to see the many sites in a car or tour bus, as it can be exhausting to walk or even cycle between the destinations. Perhaps one of the best aspects of visiting Gettysburg is that the names learned in your history textbooks truly come alive.


The Jennie Wade House
One of the historical landmarks that should not be missed in Gettysburg. Jennie Wade was the only town citizen who was killed in the battle, at the young age of 20. Her family home is completely unchanged, creating a historical home that lets you see how citizens of the area lived in that time period. It is a fascinating look at the past, and a glimpse of how war affects even civilians.


The Civil War Museum
For a thorough and exciting educational experience, head to the Civil War Museum. Begin by better understanding the causes of the war, and the factors that contributed to the separation of the Northern and Southern states. Follow up with a trip into the Battleroom Auditorium, and end with the Gettysburg Address delivered by an animated Abraham Lincoln.


The Hall of Presidents
A final destination in Gettysburg that every visitor should experience is the Hall of Presidents. This museum is a great way to see each of the nation's past leaders and hear some of their speeches. Putting a face to a name is a wonderful educational tool as well. See the typical clothing styles of each era, with sample outfits of both the presidents and the former first ladies.


There is certainly more than just history in Gettysburg. You'll also find interesting art galleries, friendly local vendors selling produce and world-class movie theaters showing your favorite films alongside historical documentaries. End a day of touring with a hearty meal at one of the local restaurants, and a relaxing drink at one of the historic pubs.
