There is nothing better in history than when things are made alive for you. This is exactly what this little museum does, great history behind it and the way everything was so preserved and life like. It's like a time capsule.
We stopped in by accident. We were walking the square and decided to visit the home. Lovingly restored by the park service, this house is filled with battle history, and of course, the Gettysburg address. Worth your time!
Most people usually get a pass to this site when they buy other tickets. It explains how the government had to get into the cemetery business. While visiting, make sure you dine at the Blue and Grey.

Previous reviewers have noted why to visit and there is nothing I can add. The visit is a step back in time and a place to ponder our ways. I found myself struggling to think what Lincoln and Wills was thinking in the aftermath. Easy to find and get to. Please don't pass this up.
David Wills was most certainly an impressive and decent man and I enjoyed learning about him. I have to say the highlight for me was knowing that I was walking thru the house President Lincoln stayed in the night before he gave the Gettysburg address, and put the finishing touches on his remarks there. The bed he slept in is... 更多
