Gettysburg Battlefield (Gettysburg, PA)


The Battle of Gettysburg was a turning point in the Civil War, proving a decisive - though costly - victory for the Union army. Every summer, history buffs re-enact the battle for onlookers and tourists. The battlefield was also the site of Abraham Lincoln's famous Gettysburg Address, in which he proclaimed that a government "of the people, by the people, and for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
