The Gettysburg National Military Park is home to some of the most historic and scenic Civil War sites.  Visitors can walk in the footsteps of soldiers who fought at such iconic places as Culp's Hill, The Peach Orchard, Wheatfield, Devil's Den, Little Round Top, and Cemetery Ridge.  The 22,000 sq. ft. Museum and Visitor Center is a great place to start your visit. Battlefield tours, either self-guided or with a Licensed Battlefield Guide, are available. Don't forget to visit the Soldiers National Cemetery and the David Wills House in town, where Abraham Lincoln stayed the night before he gave his Gettysburg Address.
