  • After a visit to the Gettysburg Diorama , this stp on our auto tour guide was very impactful. We had a knowledge of the history and an understanding of the movement of the troops during the battle.

  • Look for the 20th Maine markers. They were involved in this battle twice, on July 2 & 3, on Little Round Top and at the Angle/Copse of Trees and helped turned the tide of the battle both days. You'll see the terrain and feel the history and I promise you it is so worth the time. There are a lot of monuments that overlook the battlefield, especially Devil's Den.
  • Little Round Top is truly a must see. Along with the Visitor’s Center, the Museum, the Film, and the Cyclorama, this scenic overlook provides you with a strategic vantage point to scope out the sheer size of the battles that took place so long ago. Be careful walking up to the top, as it can be a little slippery. The trail is short and easy.
  • I think that you get a real sense of what happened here because of the lay of the land. You can stand where Chamberlain ordered the bayonet charge, as well as go down into the Devil's Den and look up at the position the Confederates were trying to take. Worth the trip.
  • This is a beautiful spot for a photographer or anyone wanting to see Gods beautiful creation. I love coming here at night during the summer. Laying on the rocks watching the sun go down, and then looking up at the clear beautiful sky, watching all the stars glow. Take my advice and check it out at night when the sun goes down.
  • A pivotal and historic spot in the battle of Gettysburg. A place to reflect on the efforts and courage of the troops from both north and south. A must see.
