Soldiers Monument

Visit the location of the Battle of Gettysburg, a turning point in the Civil War and the site of the Union’s victory in the summer of 1863, ending General Robert E. Lee’s second and most ambitious invasion of the North. It was here that Abraham Lincoln delivered his most famous speech, the Gettysburg Address.

Multi-day trips to Philadelphia can also be combined with visits to Valley Forge, Amish Country, Gettysburg and Washington DC.
