The Union's victory in the Battle of Gettysburg was the turning point of
the Civil War. With 51,000 casualties over a three day period from
July 1-3, 1863, it was also the war's bloodiest battle. President
Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, beginning with the famous "Four score and
seven years ago", was spoken here in the Autumn following the
battle. Today, over 2 million visitors annually tour the
battlefield and park buildings of Gettysburg National Military Park, the
largest battlefield memorial in the United States. The Gettysburg
Museum houses relics from the Civil War, as well as the Gettysburg
Cyclorama, a famous painting depicting the battle. It also features
interactive exhibits and a film about the war.
