The Battle of Gettysburg, fought July 1 to July 3, 1863, in Gettysburg, PA, was the turning point of the Civil War between the Union and Confederate soldiers and was the battle with the largest number of casualties (46,000 to 51,000).  This battle ended Confederate General Robert E. Lee's invasion of the North and resulted in a victory for Union Major General George G. Meade's troops.  Lee quickly led his army in retreat back to Virginia. 

On November 19, 1863, President Lincoln delivered his famous "Gettysburg Address" to honor the fallen soldiers at the dedication of the Gettysburg National Cemetery.  He stated "that these dead shall not have died in vain - that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom."  Today the Gettysburg National Cemetery and the Gettysburg National Military Park are two of the most revered historical landmarks in the nation.

A wonderful keepsake to remember your trip to this historic site and a great gift for every Civil War buff.
