Journey to the hallowed Civil War battlefields in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Explore the Gettysburg Visitor Center on your own, and then take a guided walking tour of the battlegrounds to see what life was like for soldiers in 1863.
Your time in Gettysburg begins with a visit to the Farnsworth House, where you can see remnants left over from the battle and get an introduction to military life during the Civil War. At the new visitor center, watch a 22-minute introductory film, “A New Birth of Freedom,” and then go to the museum to explore the time leading up to the battle of Gettysburg, the battle itself, and the long-lasting effects on the town after the Civil War ended. Then take in the breathtaking Gettysburg Cyclorama.
Longer than a football field and as tall as a 4-story structure, the Gettysburg Cyclorama oil painting immerses visitors in the fury of Pickett’s Charge during the third day of the Battle of Gettysburg. The painting is displayed exactly the way artist originally intended with an overhead canopy and a 3-D diorama foreground realistically featuring broken fences, shattered trees, and a cannon.
The trip concludes with a comprehensive, 2-hour tour of the Gettysburg battlefield. Your tour, led by a licensed battlefield guide, is always unique because different rangers and guides offer varying perspectives on the battle. Licensed battlefield guides train for years and must pass extensive tests administered by the National Park Service to qualify to give tours.
