Long Description:
In Gettysburg's center is Lincoln Square, where there is a circular center with flowers and pathways, and brick walkways on the outer edge of the roads.

Lincoln Square is where four roads come together at a rotary: Baltimore St, York St., Carlisle St. and Chambersburg St. These roads are also two highways: Business Route 15 and US 30.

The plaza is in five parts: the center circular hub, and four corners which are covered in red brick. The center part has beds of pretty flowers, with signs for each road. At the very center is a flag pole. The corners have signs, monuments and statues on them, as well as entrances to houses, stores, and museums.
