Gettysburg National Military Park

The small town of Gettysburg in Adam's County, south-central Pennsylvania was the site of the largest Civil War battle ever waged in the Western Hemisphere. It was here, too, that Abraham Lincoln delivered his immortal address. The bloody Battle of Gettysburg started on July 1, 1863 and lasted two days, resulting in a Union victory. The Gettysburg National Military Park now stands testimony to the battle, incorporating about 6,000 acres of land, 26 miles of park roads and more than 1,400 monuments, markers and memorials.
