Gettysburg Train Station. President Lincoln arrived here by train on November 18, 1863, invited by David Wills to deliver "a few appropriate remarks" at the dedication of the Soldiers' National Cemetery. The station also served as a field hospital during the Battle of Gettysburg, transporting 15,000 wounded soldiers after the battle. (I took this picture and it came out very nice)
