Gettysburg National Military Park marks the site of two pivotal moments in our nation’s history. In July 1863, a massive three-day battle near the town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, changed the course of the Civil War. To honor the soldiers who perished, President Abraham Lincoln visited the site to deliver his unforgettable Gettysburg Address in November of that year. Readers will learn why these events were so important to U.S. history, explore the landscape that shaped these key events, and discover the origins of the park we know today. Features include engaging sidebars that highlight unique attractions; maps to show size, location and important features of each site; glossaries; eye-catching images; charts, diagrams and more.
