2017 Visit to Gettysburg National Military Park

I recently visited my first historical site of the 1861-1865 war between the United States and the Confederate States. During junior high I had memorized Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, and we briefly read about other battles of the Civil War. Unfortunately, however, I forgot much of the information in a fairly short time.

We visited Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, on Friday, April 28, 2017. The National Military Park covers about 6000 acres—nearly 10 square miles. After visiting the museum and visitor center, we inserted a tour CD into the player in our car and spent most of the day visiting the locations of major events of the Battle of Gettysburg.
