The Soldiers National Cemetery at Gettysburg, to someone never exposed to history first hand like this, was a bit overwhelming and humbling. To have read books and been taught throughout my public school years about this portion of U.S. history I had never really comprehended of nor understood the magnitude of the sheer human costs of war. To stand in the presence of the thousands of soldiers not only from the Civil War years but WWII as well, that are interred here I left with a deeper understanding of the sacrifices made by so many to build the nation such are ours. All school students should be required to see first hand this attraction and all the others around Gettysburg in order to feel the magnitude of history here.
