I have been there myself, but it was 15 years ago though! But agree that it is well worth a visit :)

Ironically, I was going over this today. I was there last about 1994. It has since been upgraded, Digitally. The battleground map was made up of terrain and a series of lights when I saw it last.

Yeah. Big Round Top was the real highlight when I saw it too from a distance from my group.

Certainly worth getting the word out that thus battlefield is a place to visit. People and archaeologists still find stuff on the field up to this present day including bone fragments.
