On June 6, 1944, General Dwight D. Eisenhower and the Allied Expeditionary Force embarked upon “the great crusade” as thousands of Allied troops landed in Normandy, France, beginning the liberation of Europe.

Gettysburg National Cemetery is the final resting place for over 6,000 men and women who served the United States in conflicts from the Civil War through the Vietnam War. In the years following World War II, over 500 fallen soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen were brought back to Gettysburg for their final burial.
