This monument is special, because it lists all the PA soldiers who fought during the war. If you had a PA soldier ancestor, you'll want to find his name. In addition, there's a staircase to the top. There are some wonderful vista views to behold.

This is the biggest memorial on the battlefield. PA lost 35.000 men in the three day battle. This majestic memorial brings honor to our fellow state citizens who gave their all in desperate times! Moving experience!

Very well sculpted. Give yourself at least 20 minutes to park and walk around the monument. There is a LOT of detail to see!

Pennsylvania Monument is the largest monument on the Gettysburg Battlefield. Several great monuments. Can be walked into and has stairs to upper lookout. Great for children.

This structure is immense. If you are brave you can walk up the spiral staircase and get on the top of the monument. Worth seeing.

The Pennsylvania State Monument at Gettysburg Battlefield is one of the largest, if not the largest at the Battlefield. Its a monument to all of the soldiers from Pennsylvania who fought to protect their home state. Every Pennsylvania soldier's name is listed on the monument....More
