Soldiers’ National Cemetery

At the site of the Union stronghold during the Battle of Gettysburg in July 1863, the National Cemetery is forever part of U.S. history because of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. As the first such cemetery, it now features several monuments to Lincoln and the Address, along with the gravesites of more than 3,300 Union soldiers. A walking tour and free ranger walks help guide visitors through the hallowed ground.
