The Battle of Gettysburg (July 1-3, 1863) was the turning point in the Civil War. The Union victory here at Gettysburg forced General Robert E. Lee back into Virginia. It was the bloodiest battle of the American Civil War with 51,000 casualties. Many officers died in this battle which weakened General Lee’s ability to effectively wage future battles against the Union.

There is a museum and many monuments and memorials on location. See the actual location where President Abraham Lincoln said his now famous speech, “The Gettysburg Address.”
