On July 1-3 1863 Union and Confederate troops fought the Battle of Gettysburg. Gettysburg was the bloodiest single battle of the Civil War with over 50,000 casualties and the eventual Union victory was a major turning point in the war. Major battle sites at Gettysburg were preserved almost immediately after the battle.
The park came under federal ownership in 1895. Administered by the National Park Service (NPS) since 1933, Gettysburg National Military Park now incorporates a large portion of land across which the battle, its aftermath, and the commemoration took place.
