Stone Sentinels, battlefield monuments of the American Civil War

 Union Monuments at Gettysburg

Almost every one of the several hundred Union regiments and batteries that were at the Battle of Gettysburg is represented by a monument, usually funded and dedicated by its state. There are also seven state monuments and a monument to the United States Regular Army.

 

A unit's main monument was required to be placed at the location of its main line of battle, but many have a secondary monument or smaller markers showing different locations where the unit fought.

 

Some regiments from the same state share a monument. In a few cases a monument honors an entire brigade of regiments from the same state.
