Association set out to preserve portions of the battlefield as a
memorial park to the Union troops that fought the battle. In 1895, the lands were

was established. Administered by a commission of Civil War veterans, the
park's primary purpose was to be a memorial to the two armies that fought
this pivtol battle, and to mark and preserve the battle lines of each army.
Administration of the park was transferred to the Department of the

presevre and interpret the Battle of Gettysburg and the Gettysburg Address
to park visitors.
