Amazing story well worth the $8.95 that tells the story of what happened in Gettysburg and shows the town as it was in 1863.

So this location maybe overlooked on a normal historical visit. However if you want to truly grasp the three days thst were fought here. Where 60,000 men died. The replication of the town and surrounding areas will shed light on the events.
