Gettysburg Address

Battle of Gettysburg

General Lee's Farewell

Introduction

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 historic sites such as General Lee's Headquarters, The Confederate States Armory, Greystone's Headquarters, Hall of President's and First Ladies, Lincoln Train Museum, and Soldier's National Museum.
