The “Aftermath” Walking Tour
Our Original Tour




The Great T Shirt Company

Grave Digger Tours leave from The Great T Shirt Company, located at 65 Steinwehr Avenue in Gettysburg, PA.

Experience the tour that brings the reality of war to life.

Your guide will lead you through historic streets that saw the Confederates force the Union to run for their lives through Gettysburg to Cemetary Hill on the first day of the three-day battle.

Learn how caring for the injured, burying the dead, and disposing of thousands of horse carcasses became an everyday task.

See how embalming the dead preserved loved ones for their families – and how shallow graves affected citizens.

Visit a replica of a typical field hospital and learn how Civil War surgeons conducted amputations.

All this – plus graphic first-hand accounts, photographs, displays, and grave sites, all at our Baltimore Street exhibit.

NO tour like it – amazing and informative!

The Grave Digger tour is graphic, with visual enhancements throughout the route. We feel this is necessary to provide an unforgettable authentic experience for our customers.

We know where the bodies are buried!
