  • I found it to be the perfect place to propose to the love of my life.

  • Beautiful scenery, amazing monument - a must see in Gettysburg

  • This place is stunning. It's amazing to think about all the civil war veterans being there during the dedication ceremony. The view from this location is fantastic. If you follow the auto tour you will not be able to miss it.

  • Favorite visiting site of President John F Kennedy and his wife. I always hear when I go to Gettysburg. It was the site of the first day of fighting on July 1st 1863. It's kind of a higher ground and it makes one Wonder why the Confederates didn't entrenched in this part of the battlefield and let the Union Army attacked them on the heights their. Instead they let the Union forces in trench on Cemetery Hill and the Confederates attacked them the next day July 2nd and July 3rd and met with failure. In my opinion had the Confederates entrenched on top of the heights where the Eternal peace Memorial is perhaps the battle might have had a different result.

  • Very unique monument erected to symbolize unity after the Civil War. I believe that the base of monument is granite from Maine and the top of the monument is limestone from Alabama. Again, representing unity between the states.
