Why? Perhaps because his attending would be the Honorable thing to do.

Obama never put his hand across his heart during the pledge of allegiance during the first days of his presidency. I think as the president, he should have at least did that. Haven't we all known someone or family members who have served our country and/or have died in the line of duty? I'd like to think that wasn't all in vain. Of course I don't appreciate or like any type of wars and hope we never have to go through one like we did when G.W Bush was in office. I voted for Obama but truthfully, I've been disappointed in his leadership. I especially didn't like the fact that Obama appointed a Monsanto official to be chairman/lobbyist for the FDA. Our food is important and should be untainted and wholesome as possible. Monsanto is responsible for GMO foods which are unnatural and unhealthy. Imo though, Obama is still better then a conservative. Maybe not by a lot, but still a bit better. As for Gettysburg, I don't know what the president's agenda is, but it probably would be a good idea for him to attend. Maybe he has some other important business to attend to on that date and can't make it. Who knows. Anyway, my hub and I visited Gettysburg several times back in the 70s. Great place to go see and it made us appreciate the freedoms we all share.
