National Cemetary, Gettysburg: 6 reviews and 15 photos

 
 

Another National Park Service site, the National Cemetery is where President Lincoln gave his famous Gettysburg Address in November of 1863. It is also, of course, the burial site of over 7000 soldiers/veterans. Half of those buried here are from the Civil War. There is no driving allowed through the cemetery, but it does provide a nice walk and reflection.
The NY monument which is looking over the entire cemetery is apparently where Lincoln spoke.

Address: off of Steinwehr
Directions: There are a couple entrances...head out onto Taneytown or enter from town near the museums
