A New Birth of Freedom The Battle of Gettysburg was a turning point in the Civil War, the Union victory that ended General Robert E. Lee's second and most ambitious invasion of the North. Often referred to as the "High Water Mark of the Rebellion", Gettysburg was the Civil War's bloodiest battle and was also the inspiration for President Abraham Lincoln's immortal "Gettysburg Address". The park is open daily from 6:00 A.M. to 10:00 P.M. April 1 to October 31, and 6:00 A.M. to 7:00 P.M. November 1 to March 31.

Gettysburg is so beautiful and educational! The battlefield and all the museums are wonderful.

I didn't follow this trail exactly but did a very close version of it. Trail is very easy to follow (paved a lot of the time) and has great history and views of the battlefield. Really enjoyed this hike and would recommended it to anyone who enjoys history and easy walks!

I really enjoyed the walk! The only thing I did not like was that you had to walk back the same way.
