“A Century of Sacrifice:” Special NPS Memorial Day Weekend Program To Honor Fatalities from All Wars Buried in Gettysburg National Cemetery


Time: 10 a.m.


Eisenhower National Historic Site
Gettysburg National Cemetery
Gettysburg, PA

For more than one hundred years, fallen United States servicemembers were interred with honor at the Gettysburg National Cemetery.  This Memorial Day weekend, explore some of the lesser-known stories of those interred in this National Cemetery. Park rangers from Gettysburg National Military Park and Eisenhower National Historic Site will discuss the creation and history of Gettysburg National Cemetery and highlight the stories of several servicemembers from each of America’s armed conflicts from the Civil War through the war in Vietnam who were therein laid to rest from the 1860s through the 1960s.  

As the final resting place for over 6,000 men and women who served the United States, Gettysburg National Cemetery is a fitting place to remember the meaning of Memorial Day and how the United States remembers its fallen.

Join Park Rangers on Saturday, May 25, at 10:00 a.m. for a free 90-minute guided walking tour of the Gettysburg National Cemetery, focusing on stories of some of the fallen service members buried there.

Gettysburg National Military Park and Eisenhower National Historic Site are pleased to cosponsor this event. The program will begin at the Taneytown Road Entrance of the Gettysburg National Cemetery. For additional information and updates, please visit or
