Lincoln arrived in Gettysburg by train. 
Unfortunately, you will not have this option.

Passenger trains no longer service Gettysburg. However, if like Lincoln, you prefer to travel by train, there are Amtrak terminals in Harrisburg and Baltimore to get you a little closer to your Gettysburg destination. Bus service to Gettysburg via Rabbit Transit is available from Harrisburg.

Train enthusiasts won’t be disappointed. The Gettysburg Lincoln Railroad Station™ (CURRENTLY CLOSED) tells the story of Lincoln’s arrival, the Gettysburg Address and the importance of the railroad to the town before and after the battle. A new attraction at the station is planned to open in 2022. Check back for availability.
