Overview
Locations

This year—D-Day’s 75th Anniversary—experience a different side of Gettysburg on a “World War II in Gettysburg” bus tour. A collaboration between Gettysburg Battlefield Bus Tours and Tigrett Leadership Academy, this year’s bus tour departs each Saturday at 2:00 pm from the Gettysburg Tour Center. Experience moving stories of WWII veterans buried in the Gettysburg National Cemetery—including D-Day paratrooper Frank Materewicz and his brother Edward; visit a prisoner-of-war camp and learn why an intelligence camp was located here; hear stories of the Navy’s map-making operation that prepared for the invasion of Japan. The two-hour tour runs weekly from April 6 through November 9. Following the bus tour, you may add a bonus 45-minute walking tour of the Gettysburg National Cemetery. No tours June 29-August 3.
