The quiet streets of modern Gettysburg do not convey the violence of the battles that raged in the fields near here. Gettysburg battles from July 1, 2, and 3rd of 1863 saw some of the bloodiest fighting of the US Civil War. This small Pennsylvania Town was also the “high water mark” of the Confederacy military campaign – the farthest north the confederate army would penetrate. Gettysburg Cemetery was the site of Lincoln’s famous “Gettysburg Address” where he wrote of the sacrifice of the thousands who died on these Pennsylvania fields.
