The Battlefield Tour
Narrated by Wayne Motts, one of Gettysburg's most popular licensed battlefield guides, this self-guided tour is the top selling audio tour in the Gettysburg Visitor Center. The 2.5 hour tour can be explored at your own pace using either the two audio CDs included in the book, or you can download the tour to your smartphone and explore the battlefield with the additional features found in the mobile version of the tour (available for iPhone and Android ). When you purchase the Gettysburg Field Guide, you also get access to the virtual tour version of the tour.
The illustrated guidebook complements the audio tour, helping you to visualize the battlefield as it appeared in 1863. Compare the past with the present: the book shows you the locations where many of the most historic images of the battlefield were taken in the days following the battle. The book is also filled with Civil War trivia and information to ensure that even the Civil War history buffs in your family learn something new.
