NATIONAL CEMETERY WALKING TOUR
The Soldiers' National Cemetery at Gettysburg is the burial place of Union dead from the Battle of Gettysburg. Designed by landscape architect William Saunders and dedicated on November 19, 1863 by President Abraham Lincoln, the cemetery is located on Cemetery Hill south of Gettysburg. Not only is this burial ground significant as one of the first national cemeteries and as the site of the Gettysburg Address, it is situated in the anchor of the Union battle line of July 1-3, 1863. Thus the grounds include a significant portion of the Gettysburg battlefield and hosts numerous monuments and memorials. Union cannon stand as silent guards, watching over the graves of the fallen not only from Gettysburg but from many other wars in which Americans have paid the ultimate price.

The National Park Service has developed a self-guided walking tour of this historic ground available during your visit from the park information desk at the Museum and Visitor Center. You can also download a copy of this walking tour brochure to your computer by clicking in the link below.
