Twilight falls on two memorials on the Gettysburg National Military Park, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Gettysburg was the site of one of the pivotal battles in the American Civil War. Following the war, US states whose troops fought at the battle, on both the Union and Confederate sides, built memorials to those who fought and died or were injured. Each memorial is unique. Visitors can drive through the park and stop at the various memorials.
