Gettysburg historical monument it was a nice warm weather and it was great my buddy and I drove 16 location where the battle took place. we had to climb three different Towers into buildings some of the towers were five story or 4 stories high. when we got back to the visitor center we ordered some water because it was a hot day the food expensive but sometime you have no choice but to buy some or bring lunch in water is it good to bring your family to learn the history the Battle of Gettysburg
