In 2011, Gettysburg will begin our commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War. For five years, we invite you to join us as we honor the soldiers and civilians who fought and lived in Gettysburg. In upcoming months, we will unveil special events and programs that will add to the Gettysburg experience, offering a special glimpse into the lives of those who lived during the American Civil War and how that war shaped our country today.
Plan your visit around one of our many events, living histories, seminars or packages. Visit any time to experience our tours and museums that bring to life the stories of the men, women and children of Gettysburg, the honorable men who lead the great armies into battle and the brave men who fought for their beliefs.
Experience the destination of Gettysburg where history happened. The Battle of Gettysburg was the turning point of the American Civil War. Many historians agree that is was on these hallowed grounds that our nation was saved.
It was also on the hallowed grounds of Gettysburg where President Abraham Lincoln delivered the immortal Gettysburg Address at the November 19 dedication of the Soldiers’ National Cemetery. Let us not forget, but remember and honor them by learning their stories, and the stories of their friends and families who helped this country sustain as a great nation.
