Many of the
99 panoramas in Virtual Gettysburg where taken on the exact
spot that photographers chose over a hundred years ago.
Here we present four examples. In the CD-ROM, after you
have found a location you wish to explore, you can view
the panorama full-screen, pan in any direction and zoom
in and out, You can also view the location from different
perspectives by moving to another panorama, either by clicking
on a list, a map, or a hotspot in the current panorama.
It is an exciting and informative way to explore the battlefield.

structures on the battlefield, the Evergreen Cemetery gatehouse
