When Eisenhower was in the army, he spent some time training in Gettysburg. When he finally got out of the army, he purchased a farm in Gettysburg thinking that he would retire there. But, he became president and did not get to really stay there until after his term. However, he did use the farm when dignitaries from the other countries came to the US. He would make sure they got a two-hour tour of the whole thing before he even took them into the house. We purchased the tickets for this tour at the Gettysburg visitor’s center. You must go on a bus to see the farm and the house.
