EVERGREEN CEMETERY
Gettysburg's town cemetery is located on Cemetery Hill, adjacent to Soldiers National Cemetery.  Guarded by the cemetery gatehouse which stands along Baltimore Street, it
was at the center of the Union battle line along Cemetery Ridge, and later the site of
Lincoln's Gettysburg Address.  Today it is a quiet, peaceful spot,  where you will find gravestones inscribed with the familiar names of those who lived in the town and
surrounding area at the time of the battle.
Further information about the cemetery, its history & its role during the battle,
and the lives of those buried there, can be found in
William A. Frassanito's
