The campus is located directly adjacent to the Gettysburg National Military Park, which encompasses the very National Cemetery that Abraham Lincoln dedicated with that famous speech on November 19, 1863, honoring the sacrifices of those who fought in the Civil War, in hopes that a "government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." It was upon this rich tapestry that Gettysburg was built.
