Gettysburg National Military Park is the home of the George Rosensteel Collection, one of the largest collections of Civil War relics in the United States. Bequeathed to the National Park Service by the Rosensteel family, the collection is the center piece of the museum in the park Museum and Visitor Center, and features a vast collection of weapons, uniforms, soldier items, and relics of the Battle of Gettysburg. Some of these items are one of a kind and through the cooperation of other agencies, museums, and individuals, additional Civil War relics are on display side by side with items from the Rosensteel collection.
To view some of the very interesting items related to Civil War soldier life, visit the "Camp Life: Civil War Collections" pages, produced by the Cultural Resources Division of the National Park Service.
