A visit to the National Cemetery is an important part of this visit. Take time to reflect upon the sacrifices that these soldiers made. They came a long way from home to fight, suffer, and die to preserve our union.

Make sure you stop by this lesser known battlefield on your Gettysburg trip. Well preserved and powerful. First stop on your visit should be the visitors center. Take time to look around, watch the film and talk to the park ranger.

This was my last stop on the Battlefield tour. It is a must see, especially for history buffs. Just as a reminder of the consequences of war and a remembrance of all of those who gave their lives in this battle.

A very peaceful and beautiful place. We were there in June, and it was really nice. Last stop on the auto tour. The statue of the soldier looking to the north (towards home) is very impressive.

The Antietam National Cemetery is a somber but beautiful memorial to the tremendous losses sustained that day. Laid out in neat rows and organized by the state from which the soldier came from. Sadly some of the stones are marked "Unknown" but still offers a...More

The Antietam National Cemetery is the last stop on the battlefield tour. Knowing that there were so many casualties on that single day and that so many young American men died in just one day is almost unimaginable. Seeing the rows upon rows of tombstones...More
