This Devil’s Den Gettysburg tour lets you explore the historic Gettysburg battlefield with maximum flexibility, safety and value.
About the Tour
This self-guided audio & GPS tour begins at the parking area and then leads you into that field. Here we set the stage and introduce you to the commanders, Union General Daniel Sickles and Confederate General James Longstreet. Both are tactical masterminds with thousands of men at their command… but who will win?
We’ll step back in time as we watch the Union bring out cannons and their best-in-the-world sharpshooters, hoping to fend off the Confederate. We’ll then follow the route of the inevitable Confederate advance, aided by cannon fire of their own.
When we arrive at the monument to the Orange Blossoms, we’ll hear how desperate the Union position has become and revisit the heroism displayed by the courageous men of the 124th New York.
Afterward, on the Gettysburg Battlefield tour, we’ll visit the monument to the Pennsylvania and Maine soldiers who gave everything to prevent the Confederates from Devil’s Den.
As we continue our walk, listen to accounts of how the whole struggle splintered into pieces, becoming a brutal, chaotic sequence of skirmishes among the battlefield. We’ll immerse you in the pandemonium of gun smoke, rifle fire, and bayonet charges so you can practically see the fighting unfold around you.
As we reach the end of the Devil’s Den Gettysburg Tour, we’ll watch the final results of the bloody conflict and consider what either side gained–or lost–through so much bloodshed.
Starting Point Address: Sickles Avenue, Sickles Ave, Gettysburg, PA 17325, USA
