Lee and his wife. Take time to remember the fallen on Christmas Day with a guided tour of the Gettysburg Battlefield. Thousands of soldiers rest in the Gettysburg Cemetery, where President Abraham Lincoln delivered his famous Address. Then, enjoy the fellowship of a Christmas dinner with all the trimmings.

Paul Philippoteaux’s Gettysburg Cyclorama, a 360° scene of Pickett’s Charge, puts us in the middle of the Civil War on Boxing Day. But we’ll come back to the 21st century for a tour and lunch with Mamie Eisenhower at the National Historic Eisenhower Farmstead.
