David Wills, an attorney and businessman, was a prominent citizen of Gettysburg, PA. Governor Andrew Curtin asked Wills to oversee the task of creating a cemetery for the soldiers who fell at the Battle of Gettysburg. At Wills’s personal invitation, President Abraham Lincoln came to Gettysburg to “deliver a few appropriate remarks” for the dedication of the Soldiers’ National Cemetery. He, along with several other dignitaries, spent the night as a guest in the Wills home. Today, the David Wills House, located at 8 Lincoln Square, Gettysburg, PA (717/334-2499; www.davidwillshouse.org ) is now operated as an official part of the Gettysburg National Military Park. It includes five galleries, two recreated rooms, including the Lincoln bedroom with the actual bed in which Lincoln slept, two interactive stations, and two films. Residents tell me that after the National Park Service took it over, it became more “museum-ish” rather than simply being a historical site, but it was still an interesting experience.
