Welcome to Gettysburg

Gettysburg is a small town in south-central Pennsylvania just north of the Maryland border and about 150 miles west of Philadelphia. Gettysburg is best known for Civil War history and the 1863 Battle of Gettysburg, the bloodiest battle of the Civil War and a Union victory that was a turning point in the war. The National Military Park and battlefield, the National Cemetery, and the memorial on the site of President Abraham Lincoln’s famous 1863 Gettysburg Address are local highlight destinations. Aside from many Civil War historic sites, battle reenactments, and lots of family-friendly attractions, the region offers scenic countryside, farmers markets, and a craft wine, beer, mead, and cider trail.
