Gettysburg National Cemetary
Gettysburg National Cemetery is a fantastic place to go to. The history in the cemetery shows not only the vast number of people that died in Gettysburg, but also of the armed forces who have fought in other wars. There are even great monuments of men such as Winfield Scott Hancock and John Reynolds. There is also a monument dedicated to the spot where President Abraham Lincoln gave his famous Gettysburg Address.
The main monument is the Soldiers National Monument in the heart of the main part of Gettysburg Cemetery. It highlights the majestic nature of the area with a true showing of the appreciation that all have given these soldiers. There is a special section showing all of the soldiers who died in the Battle and have no name, rank or state tied to them. It is sad that the only way to identify these men is by a number on a small stone.
Adjacent to the Cemetery is East Cemetery Hill. This is part of the Cemetery, but is located on a key point where the Battle of Gettysburg was fought. There are many interesting statues, canons and great photos here. Also, Evergreen Cemetery sits next to Gettysburg National Cemetery. It is just a short walk from outside the village of Gettysburg.
I would highly recommend visiting Gettysburg, and it is a must if you happen to be in Gettysburg from out of town.
