The significance of
the Battle of Gettysburg
cannot be overstated.

What happened here during and after
the 3-day battle,
the bloodiest battle of the Civil War,
changed the history of our land forever.




The Lydia Leister farm, 1863

The farm of Lydia Leister, as it appeared in 1863.

To honor the men and women who lived through the Battle of Gettysburg.

To share and remember the little-known stories of the civilians of Gettysburg – their contributions, their losses, their sacrifices.

To understand the medical care of the wounded and honor the physicians who did their best to save lives.

To honor the dead, and learn how soldiers died, were buried, and were remembered.

These are the reasons we offer historic walking tours.

Come and see the places where soldiers fought and died. Walk the land where civilians struggled to find safety. See the battle-damaged buildings where Confederate sharpshooters and the Union soldiers exchanged fire. Explore our replica of a Civil War field hospital and learn how surgeries and amputations were performed. Visit Lincoln Cemetery and learn about burial procedures.

And much, much more . . .

There are dozens of tours in Gettysburg that describe the battle and the paranormal.

But there is only one tour company that brings the reality of war to life – The Grave Digger Tours.

Our tours run nightly from April 1st through November, weather permitting.

We also run tours during the off-season and by special appointment.
