No place in America reflects
the principles of a nation, the courage of its people, and the
heritage of freedom as much as Gettysburg.
The greatest battle ever
fought on the continent, and one of the most decisive battles of
world history occurred at Gettysburg. The Gettysburg Battlefield
is the most visited, most written about, and most intensely
studied battle ever recorded. And even though, he didn't think his
words were important at the time, President Lincoln's address
here, that immortalized the significance of this historical site,
is still today memorized by students of history.
Today, you can stand on
the very ground on which a nation was saved. You can roam through
the Gettysburg National Military Park, the largest battlefield
shrine in America with over 1,000 monuments and cannon covering 40
miles of scenic avenues. You can visit numerous museums and

States Armory, Greystone's Headquarters, Hall of President's and
First Ladies, Lincoln Train Museum, and Soldier's National Museum.
