I became a huge Civil War buff after Ken Burns's series during the early 90's. My grandfather brought me to Gettysburg when I was 12 and I have never forgotten. I definitely appreciated having a strong knowledge of the battle because it helped me make sense out of what is a huge battlefield. The highlight for me was definitely Little Round Top, which was the scene of some of the fiercest fighting and has a commanding view of battlefield. The monuments along Seminary Ridge are also quite moving, especially the North Carolina memorial.

The re-enactment of the battle of Gettysburg can be a lot of fun, even if it is historically inaccurate and campy. Travel the town with a guide or a history buff who can translate the terrain into the story.

Been here several times, most recently to a conference. Bit isolated and also a bit commercialised, but it's an important battleground and they do capture the 'war is hell' thing nicely.
