For the first three days in July 1863, the Army of Potomac and the Army of Northern Virginia brought the horrors of war to these fields in central Pennsylvania. The documentary "The Civil War" by Ken Burns sparked my imagination regarding this era of American history. The epic "Gettysburg" and the novel "The Killer Angels" intrigued me enough to make a pilgrimage to this mystic battlefield. It was different from what I expected after having seen all of the virtual tours on the internet, thus the genesis of this page. I am not here to dispute what happened during the battle, I personally wasn't there.
Over 975 individual snapshots were stitched together using Live Pictures Photovista to bring these 46 panoramic images here for your viewing pleasure. My biggest struggle was the map. Thanks to the National Parks Service for providing the maps as public domain and making them available on the web.
Click on one of the purple circles or from the list below to view a 360 degree panoramic image from the battlefield .
Depending upon you computer and connection it should take 1-4 minuets to bring up the pan.
Once the panoramic image is completely loaded, the image will begin to spin. You can then use your mouse to "look around."
Users with Windows 3.1 will not be able to view the pans.
Some of the images were taken in March 1998, November 1998, and the latest batch was taken in early February 1999.
