Top Activities

Gettysburg National Military Park : The Battle of Gettysburg was a turning point in the Civil War, the Union victory in the summer of 1863 that ended General Robert E. Lee’s second and most ambitious invasion of the North.  It also provided President Abraham Lincoln with the setting for his most famous address.

Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center : A film “A New Birth Of Freedom” orients you to the Battle of Gettysburg and the American Civil War, the massive “Battle of Gettysburg” Cyclorama painting creates the feeling of being on the fields of the Battle and the museum tells the story of the Battle and the war through artifacts, interactive exhibits and additional films.

Eisenhower National Historic Site : The home and farm of President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Located adjacent to the Gettysburg Battlefield, the farm served the President as a weekend retreat and a meeting place for world leaders. With its peaceful setting, it was a much needed respite from Washington and a backdrop for efforts to reduce Cold War tensions.

David Wills House : David Wills’ home tells the story of Lincoln and the Gettysburg Address. It was where President Lincoln put the finishing touches on the Gettysburg Address. The speech transformed Gettysburg’s community from a place of devastation to the symbol of our nation’s new birth of freedom.
