Later, we visited Eisenhower National Historic Site, the retirement home of President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Here we were given a small walking tour and house tour, and I got to see Eisenhower's country home. Eisenhower had many important figures and dignitaries visit his home, and the home's furniture collection was a story in its own right, even if it gave me flashbacks of my grandparents' house. While this might not seem to have much to do with the Battle of Gettysburg, Eisenhower's farms border the battlefield, and the now historic site is managed by the same administration as Gettysburg NMP.
