My favorite Gettysburg visit is to have a picnic at the battlefield amphitheater area on a warm, sunny spring day when the trees are in bloom and birdsong fills the air.
Then I’ll go shopping downtown until the sun is about to set, when I’ll head back to the battlefield to watch the sunset from Little Round Top.
You can watch a slideshow I made of one favorite Gettysburg visit when we took a train ride.

"I just wanted to let you know I viewed your website this week and I love it. I am right now looking at the nighttime Ghost Tour info because that is what I'd like to do if I can get my scaredy-cat daughter to go with me. I'd love to make a weekend of it at a bed & breakfast with a ghost tour. I had no idea of a haunted orphanage!
I clicked on the link to the archives...that's a great feature! Your website is much easier to navigate than the official website and more detailed! I like yours very much!
Everytime I click on something, it leads me to something else that catches my interest. You have a great site! I can't say enough good about it. Terrific!" ~ Jean in MD
"The Eternal Flame is always a nice thing to see. It's pretty breath-taking and not a lot of people know about it. Sach's Bridge, which is right past the Eisenhower Farm, is always a pretty place to visit. If people are looking for Ghost Tours, the Farnsworth Inn tour is a good one to check out and the Jenny Wade house too. The football field by the middle school is always kind of creepy; a large battle happened there and it is said to be haunted. Also, just going Ghost Hunting around the battle field is pretty fun too; Triangle Field and Devil's Den are great places to catch orbs. The park is open til 10 during the summer. General Lee's statue and Pickett's charge are kind of erie to see; Lee's statue stands in the area where he watched Pickett and his men be slaughtered and you can see Lee from Pickett's Charge. My favorite place to eat is the Pub in the circle of town; it has something for everyone. I hope this helps. If I think of more, I will let you know." ~ Julie in MD
"I like to climb the rocks and hike. I would really like to go on the ghost tours." ~ Lisa in MD
"I just sent your web site to my twin brother Ron with recommendations to join. We LOVE Gettysburg with a passion. We generally go down at least twice a year. Our older brother passed away in 2007 and wanted his ashes spread over Picket's Charge area which we did. This fall will be my third time in seven months that I go down. Thank you for your wonderful web site and keep up the good work. We (brother & I ) are both in our late 50's and we re-enacted in Gettysburg as well as other places, but nothing strikes us as "home" as Gettysburg does. Keeping up to date with stuff that goes on day to day, month by month enables us to keep in very close ties with what's going on with our favourite part of the world." ~ Rolly in Cornwall, Ontario, Canada
Read what a 7th grade social studies class shared as favorite Gettysburg facts they learned from studying my website.
You do a great job. And that is from somebody who has studied the Civil War and visited Gburg as a professional historian for over thirty years. ~ John Gibney, Director of Monroe County Historical Museums, River Raisin Battlefield in Monroe, Michigan
