For a complete list of HistoryAmerica tours, visit www.historyamerica.com or call (800) 628-8542.

GUIDES

If you go to Gettysburg on your own, you can hire a licensed battlefield guide for a tour in your vehicle by going to the Visitor Center on Taneytown Road, across from Gettysburg National Cemetery. Rates begin at $40 for a two-hour tour; longer tours can be arranged. Guides cannot be reserved in advance except by groups of seven or larger.

WHILE YOU'RE THERE

Besides attractions such as the Battle Theater, ghost tours and a wax museum, Gettysburg offers nonhistorical diversions. Golfers who'd like to take a break from history can find an exceptional course eight miles south of Gettysburg off Taneytown Road (the road on which Union Gen. George Gordon Meade marched his army into Gettysburg on July 1, 1863). The Links at Gettysburg opened in 1999 and features miniature cannons as tee markers. More information: (717) 359-8000; www.thelinksatgettysburg.com.
