Evergreen Cemetery – formerly called Citizen's Cemetery and Ever Green Cemetery – is a historic 29.12 acre rural cemetery located just outside Gettysburg Borough, in Cumberland Township, Adams County, Pennsylvania. It is part of Gettysburg Battlefield Historic District, and is surrounded by Gettysburg National Military Park and Soldiers' National Cemetery.

The cemetery played a strategic role in the July 1 to 3, 1863 Battle of Gettysburg. Four months after the battle, at the dedication of the immediately-adjacent National Cemetery, President Abraham Lincoln delivered his "Gettysburg Address" from a platform in Evergreen Cemetery.

  • We visited Jennie Wades resting place. The location was easy to find. Beautiful monument. I decided why I was there to put American flags, flowers, and a white cross. I know the house was and will be a great place to visit. A true historical site but so is her resting place next to her parents.
  • We have been to this cemetery many times. So full of Gettysburg history related to the battle and to the townspeople of Gettysburg. Highly recommend that you do some research of your own about the town elders that are located here. We have a full review on our blog site and YouTube channel.
