The "BattleCam" - Live Gettysburg Battlefield Photographs
The "Battle-Cam" has been shut down once again by our Government. The property which the Battle-Cam was located on has been taken over by the
NPS. They will be removing the motel adjacent to Gen. Lee's Headquarters and the parking lot accross from the motel as well. We will be uploading
images from the present, past, including some from the National Tower until we find another location for the "Battle-Cam". We are SORRY !
We have introduced a larger format image and sharpened the image guality ... hope you enjoy the view!
It is located on Seminary Ridge overlooking McPherson's woods where the first days battle began. For more Battlefield photos and panoramic
views please enjoy our

We are sad to announce that the "Battle Cam" will no longer be housed in Gettysburg Tower--we are including a direct quote from the letter that the United States Department of the Interior sent us:
"The United States Attorney has advised that a Declaration of Taking has been filed on May 17, 2000, which vests title in the United States of America to the Gettysburg Tower property within Gettysburg National Military Park.
"Our records indicate that you may have one or more cameras located on the Gettysburg Tower. The purpose of this letter is to inform you that it will be necessary for the NationalPark Service to obtain possession of the property, vacant and free of any cameras or personalproperty by June 2, 2000"
Feel free to email us at Tom with your thoughts or suggestions. We will be creating an archive of notable "Battle Cam" shots for you to enjoy. These will no doubt be the last of their kind, since it is public knowledge that the Tower will be demolished on July 3, 2000.
From the vantage point of the GettysburgNational Tower, the "Battle Cam"© overlooked some of the most notablelandmarks
of the actual battles at Gettysburg.
