Gettysburg National Military Park
125 Taneytown Rd
As the final resting place for over 6,000 men and women who served the United States in conflicts from the 1860s through the 1970s, 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 from Gettysburg National Military Park and Eisenhower National Historic Site as they discuss the creation and history of Gettysburg National Cemetery and highlight stories of several servicemembers from each of America’s armed conflicts, from the Civil War through the war in Vietnam, who were laid to rest between 1863 and 1971.
The free, 90-minute program takes place on Saturday, May 27 at 6 pm. Meet at the Taneytown Road entrance of the Gettysburg National Cemetery for this guided walking tour of the Gettysburg National Cemetery, focusing on stories of some of the fallen servicemembers buried there.
