This is the largest of the monuments. You can climb up to the upper level and look out over the battlefield. A memorial to all those from Pennsylvania who fought in the battle here. The architecture and statues are a true work of art.
This monument is located at the point where on the second day of battle Union artillery held the line late in the day as Meade called for infantry from Culp's Hill and other areas to strengthen and hold the center of the union position.
This was a nice memorial. On the top you could see just about everything. There were things that told you where everything was, and how far away they are. So it was pretty cool to be up there.
